Trinity Law School has announced that Dean Myron Steeves has been elected to Christian Legal Society’s board of directors. Located in over 1,000 cities in the U.S., the Christian Legal Society (CLS) is a membership organization of Christian attorneys, judges, law students, and other legal professionals dedicated to serving Jesus Christ through the practice of law, defense of religious freedom, and provision of legal aid to the needy.
CLS’s Center for Law & Religious Freedom has been involved or filed briefs in nearly every major U.S. Supreme Court case involving religious liberty over the past 30 years and has been involved in major religious liberty legislation on federal and state levels—including the Equal Access Act, Religious Freedom Restoration Act, and Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act on the federal level.
“Mr. Steeves is a strong advocate for our mission and we look forward to benefiting from his Christian leadership, legal insights, and academic experience,” says David Nammo, CLS executive director & CEO. “CLS is impressed with his drive to inspire law students to take their degree into the world to make a positive impact for Christianity.”
“I am humbled and feel privileged to join this esteemed fellowship of Christian lawyers and law students whose vision is to act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with their God,” says Dean Steeves.
Dean Steeves is responsible for developing and executing strategic growth initiatives, advancing the integration of the gospel of Jesus Christ through academic excellence, advocating for legal justice, and defining Trinity Law as one of our nation’s premier evangelical law schools. Dean Steeves has been associated with Trinity Law since 1992.
