DURHAM, N.C., June 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading Christian higher education resource, Christian Universities Online (http://www.christianuniversitiesonline.org/), has published a ranking of the Top Ten Law Degree Programs 2017. This ranking gave consideration to schools that are members or member eligible of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU), with a specific focus on schools that were included in CCCU's more comprehensive 50 Best Colleges and Universities 2017 ranking, published earlier this year. This new ranking shines a spotlight on schools that offer degree programs specifically in the field of law or related fields.
Placing first in this ranking is Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, while Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington, took the second spot on the list.

Anna-Rebekah Orr, site editor at Christian Universities Online, states that the goal of this ranking is to highlight schools that provide the best and widest variety of law degree programs. In compiling this listing, Christian Universities Online (CUO) reviewed schools with a variety of programs ranging from attorney and paralegal programs to politics, government, and criminal justice. Orr adds, "It is important to remember that the legal field is broad. Criminal justice, elder law, family law, corporate general practice and liability are only a few of the options that a law degree candidate will choose from, while other potential career paths within this field might include that of paralegal or other support staff. Students who are interested in a career in politics or criminal justice will also be propelled forward by a law degree. Christian schools that offer degrees in law are playing an important role in our society by bringing a Christian perspective to bear within this field--oftentimes training people to play an important role as advocate for what is ethical and fair in many kinds of situations. Christian law schools offer a distinctive and important lens through which to study law and CUO is therefore pleased to offer this resource to prospective students who are seeking to study law within a Christian context. Our ranking of Top Ten Law Degree Programs 2017 will serve as a useful guide."
