Trinity Law School
In 1980, a trio of Christian leaders – Dr. John Warwick Montgomery, Dr. Harold Lindsell, and Dr. Walter Martin – had a vision for an institution called the Simon Greenleaf School of Law. Their goal was the academic integration of law, human rights, and defense of the Christian faith. Eventually this school was renamed Simon Greenleaf University to reflect broader educational goals.
In 1997, SGU joined Trinity International University and was renamed Trinity Law School. Trinity’s broadly evangelical ethos includes many of the same emphases that accompanied the Law School’s original founding in 1980, including the integration of the Christian faith and other disciplines such as law and the humanities.
Trinity Law School is part of the Trinity International University family of schools. Trinity International University holds to the statement of faith of the Evangelical Free Church of America (adopted June 26, 2008). The Evangelical Free Church of America is an association of autonomous churches united around these theological convictions.
