Judge Paul Pressler School of Law

Ethics Daily ran my latest article today, which is entitled "Baptist College to Start 'Judge Paul Pressler School of Law.'" It reports that Louisiana College is starting a new law school to be named for one of the two main leaders of the fundamentalist takeover of the Southern Baptist Convention. It will be interesting to see how the school turns out and if it will create graduates similar to those coming out of Regent's law school, such as the one who found herself at the center of the recent controversy regarding the firing of federal prosecutors for political reasons.

  1. There are several similar law schools already. The Evangelical Free Church University Trinity International University has Trinity Law School at a site in Santa Ana California. Trinity also teaches all the classic legal curriculum and information any other American law school teaches, but they do so from a Christian perspective. In practice the Christian perspective affects the curriculum in much the same way that Economics colors the Chicago curriculum, or Marxism colors the curriculum as taught by Critical Legal Studies gurus. Trinity is a Christian Law School though in a more definite way than Notre Dame is Catholic. Trinity is more “conservative” than Methodist law school Emory, though Trinity faculty use many of the books developed by Emory scholars like Berman and Witt. Trinity may differ from the new Louisiana school in being less wedded to positivism and southern culture, depending on where they go with their emphasis.

    They will regret this decision more than they will ever know. There is a VERY dark truth about this man that is true to this day. Numbers 32:23 tells us that we can be SURE that the truth will find us out.

    ..."if you should harm even one hair on the head of one of these little ones..."

    May God have mercy on you, Herman Paul Pressler.

    I'm curious what the previous poster is suggesting about Judge Paul Pressler? I don't know a thing about the man, but there seems to be a serious insinuation there.
