Christian Legal Society
The Christian Legal Society (CLS) was founded in 1961, and remains a national non-profit organization serving thousands of Christian attorneys, judges, law professors, law students and paralegals. Its headquarters are in Springfield, VA. CLS is represented by a broad and diverse Christian Membership: encompassing the Orthodox and Roman Catholic traditions, as well as numerous denominations of Protestantism.
The Duquesne Law chapter of CLS meets weekly for prayer, scripture reading, and discussion of current issues facing the student. Additionally, CLS participates in local outreach with Project Angel Tree and the Pittsburgh Project, and is involved in the Western Pennsylvania Chapter of CLS attorneys. CLS meetings and events are open to all students, regardless of religious affiliation. Membership is available to those students who submit required fees and sign a Statement of Faith.
