The Central Ohio Chapter is a fellowship of Christian lawyers, law students, and ministry friends in Columbus and surrounding areas who have a passion for serving Christ, the community, and each other. We strive to integrate our faith with our legal practice. Our chapter is affiliated with the national organization of the Christian Legal Society.
Our activities vary throughout the year and include:
- Periodic luncheons with speakers who include judges, attorneys, and holders of political office.
- A day long CLE focusing on issues of faith and practice every December. This CLE also provides professionalism credits.
- Various informal gatherings for mutual encouragement and fellowship.
- Actively supporting the mission of the CLS law student chapters at Capital University and The Ohio State University.
