Cross & Gavel

Institute for Christian Legal Studies

U.S. CapitalCross & Gavel is a project of the Institute for Christian Legal Studies (ICLS), a cooperative ministry of Regent University School of Law and the Christian Legal Society.

The mission of ICLS is to equip and encourage Christian law students, law professors, and practicing lawyers:

  • To seek and study Biblical truth, including the natural law tradition, as it relates to law and legal institutions.
  • To encourage them in their spiritual formation and growth.
  • To encourage their compassionate outreach to the poor and needy.
  • To encourage integration of Christian faith and practice with their study, teaching, and practice of law.

Cross & Gavel provides information, networking, and resources as part of that mission.
