The Law Christian Fellowship (LCF) was founded at the University of Virginia School of Law in 1973 to provide an open forum for law students and their associates to grow and serve as Christians during their law school years. LCF gathers for Bible studies, weekly meetings, service projects, and retreats to assist its participants in serving God by serving the School of Law in tangible ways. LCF is open to any law student, spouse, faculty member, administrative member, or person otherwise affiliated with the UVA School of Law who is interested in starting or growing in his or her relationship with Christ.
Tuesday Fellowship: Tuesdays, 5:45–7:00 p.m. in Purcell Reading Room. Students gather weekly for dinner and a time of fellowship. Often speakers from all walks of law school and practice will join us to consider the vocation of law from a Christian perspective.
Men's Bible Study: Wednesdays, 7:30–8:15 a.m. at the Law School (room TBD). This is a weekly opportunity to immerse in Scripture (currently, Ephesians) at the start of the day.
The Center for Christian Study will host a Law Christian Fellowship Reception on Saturday, May 12, during UVA Law Alumni Reunions Weekend for alumni celebrating a reunion year. Learn more.
“The Law Christian Fellowship is a gem at UVA. Through the mentoring program, community service opportunities, weekly prayer meetings, and informal social gatherings, I have been blessed with companions with whom I can share the ups and downs of life and faith in Christ. The weekly talks and seasonal seminars sponsored by LCF have surely helped me to not merely 'think like a lawyer,' but think like a lawyer ardently seeking after God’s kingdom with the mind of Christ and the help of the Holy Spirit.”
