"There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry: 'Mine!'”

Abraham Kuyper

Our theme for this year’s conference embraces that beautiful truth. Every square inch of our human existence—even the practice of law—belongs to God. Regardless of the type of practice you have, the name of your law school, or the sophistication of your clients, your work matters!

Come join Christian legal professionals and law students from across the country for our national conference in Colorado Springs, Colorado! It will be a great time of learning, fellowship, and worship. A broad range of seminars, CLEs, and workshops will be offered. Our location, with its opportunities for recreation and exploring natural wonders, complements magnificently the conference theme and our spiritual formation emphasis on prayer. The National Christian Law Student Convention will also take place during this weekend (Saturday, October 20, 2012).
