Trinity Law School
Championing a Biblical view of Human Law and Government
At its core, our community is shaped by our commitment to the Gospel – the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. We exist to serve Christ by championing a biblical view of human law and government through our students, graduates, faculty, and staff.
In 1980, a trio of Christian leaders – Dr. John Warwick Montgomery, Dr. Harold Lindsell, and Dr. Walter Martin – had a vision for an institution called the Simon Greenleaf School of Law. Their goal was the academic integration of law, human rights, and defense of the Christian faith. Eventually this school was renamed Simon Greenleaf University to reflect broader educational goals.
In 1997, SGU joined Trinity International University and was renamed Trinity Law School. Trinity’s broadly evangelical ethos includes many of the same emphases that accompanied the Law School’s original founding in 1980, including the integration of the Christian faith and other disciplines such as law and the humanities.
Trinity Law School is part of the Trinity International University family of schools. Trinity International University holds to the statement of faith of the Evangelical Free Church of America (adopted June 26, 2008). The Evangelical Free Church of America is an association of autonomous churches united around these theological convictions.
“I found God, not only through the values of Trinity Law School, but also through the way that law is being taught. There is a parallel to Scripture. After seeing the conduct of Christian attorneys and non-Christian attorneys, I realized what kind of man I want to be.”
"Trinity Law School’s biggest strength is its faculty and community. I was well supported by all the professors who provided feedback consistently. They supported me by providing tutors and open office hours to discuss the material while I was in the Flex Track Option."
“The practical faculty support I was provided with at Trinity helped me master each subject.”
“Any law school could have prepared me to be a lawyer, but only Trinity could have prepared me to be an advocate with a moral center and a heart.”
