RALEIGH, N.C. –The Wake County Christian Legal Society will hold its monthly meeting at Campbell Law School on Friday, Jan. 18, and Campbell Law Associate Professor of Law Greg Wallace will serve as the keynote speaker.
Wallace, who teaches constitutional law with a concentration in free speech, church and state, and constitutional interpretation, will address the religious justifications for our constitutional commitment to religious freedom.
“I am excited for the opportunity to speak with the Wake County Christian Legal Society,” said Wallace. “Our Founding Fathers knew well the importance of religious freedom, and the First Amendment is based on religious arguments that presume the existence of God and protect man's accountability to God through religious faith and exercise.”
Founded in 1961, Christian Legal Society seeks to inspire and train attorneys, judges, law professors, paralegals, law students, and other legal professionals to proclaim the Word of God and practice Christian principles through attorney ministries, law student ministries, legal aid ministries, and through the Center for Law and Religious Freedom. The Wake County chapter routinely meets on the third Friday of each month.
