October 26, 2002|From Times Wire Services

LYNCHBURG, Va. — The Rev. Jerry Falwell's Liberty University plans to open a law school to train conservative lawyers who will defend religious rights.

"It is high time that we create a law school that will produce men and women who are committed to the Judeo-Christian ethic, the preciousness of human life and the defense of the Judeo-Christian values that formed this great nation," Falwell said.

The law school has been approved by Liberty's Board of Trustees and is scheduled to open next fall, but it must still win accreditation from state officials and the American Bar Assn., a process that can take years.
