Sarah Posner reports at Religion Dispatches about how professors in class at the law school founded by the late Jerry Falwell pressured students to choose "God's Law" over "Man's" in an exam question about a notorious kidnapping case. The two professors who taught the class at Liberty University are personally involved in the case. One of them is Dean of the law school, Mat Staver. Students say that their professors were advocates for law breaking. The professors do their legal work through the Christian Right group, Liberty Counsel, which represents Miller. Liberty Counsel denies that it was involved in the kidnapping.
Frederick Clarkson notes in reference to Posner's report:
While it is unclear at this writing how successful Liberty Law will be in molding a generation of revolutionary theocratic attorneys, it is worth considering that the school was accredited by the American Bar Association last year. It is also worth considering that current Virginia Governor (and former state Attorney General) Bob McDowell is a graduate of Regent University Law School, founded by theocratic televangelist and political operative, Pat Robertson. Regent Law faced some similar controversy about the content of its early courses, when founding Dean Herb Titus taught R.J. Rushdoony's Institutes of Biblical Law alongside conventional law school texts.
