Christian Legal Society (CLS)

The NIU chapter of the Christian Legal Society (CLS) has set out three goals to meet the spiritual needs of interested students. The first is to provide a forum for all students, regardless of religious affiliation, to ask questions and gain knowledge about the Christian faith. The second is to provide a place for fellowship and encouragement of all students, particularly Christ-followers, in the law school. The third is to come to a better understanding of what it means to be a Christian attorney. CLS meets once a week during the noon hour for food, fun, Bible study, prayer, and discussion. CLS also periodically brings in knowledgeable panelists to share their insights.
