Christian Legal Society is excited to offer the CLS Online Gathering, an online gathering of CLS friends with the purpose of creating community and mentorship using an online platform.
Many legal professionals have told us of their desire to have regular fellowship with other Christian lawyers, but geography, time, or other barriers keep them from regularly attending CLS Chapter meetings. We are thrilled to offer an online gathering where such issues will no longer prevent getting together with other lawyers and law students of faith and where you can be encouraged with great speakers and fellowship.
If you are already active in a local CLS Chapter, you are welcome to join us, but it is our hope that you will remain actively involved in your local chapter. The CLS Online Gathering is not a CLS Chapter nor is it a replacement for your local, in-person fellowship. It is intentionally designed for those who do not have easy access to a CLS Chapter.
Meeting Time & "Location"
The CLS Online Gathering will meet the fourth Wednesday of each month from 12:45-1:45 PM CENTRAL TIME.

Invite Your Friends
Please feel free to forward this information to lawyers you think would enjoy attending the CLS Online Gathering. You do not need to be a member of CLS to participate. This is a great way to encourage other lawyers in their faith.
We are hoping you will make it a priority to attend the CLS Online Gathering as a way of having a regular time of fellowship with other Christian attorneys and law students, especially if you are not in a location where a local CLS Chapter regularly meets. It might help change the way you feel about the practice of law.
If you are interested in the CLS Online Gathering but cannot join us on August 26th, please email Stephen Moll at firstname.lastname@example.org, so we can keep you in the loop on our upcoming plans and speakers.
As we continue in these challenging days for our nation and our world, we hope you’ll find some strength in these words from Joshua 1:9 where the Lord commanded Joshua in this way:
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
We hope you will join us for the CLS Online Gathering and seek strength and encouragement through the Lord—for He is Good every day. We pray the power of His words brings new and lasting hope whatever your current situation.
