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 attorneys, but how 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 attorneys 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 be the fourth Tuesday of every other month from 1:45 to 2:45 pm Eastern unless otherwise noted.
Please mark your calendars to join us for the next CLS Online Gathering, which will be held on Tuesday, May 24, from 1:45-2:45 pm EDT. Our featured speaker, Timothy McMahan King, author of Addiction Nation: What the Opioid Crisis Reveals About Us., will be sharing resources and information about understanding addiction from a Christian perspective.
Tim is in recovery from an opioid addiction developed after a near-fatal illness. His personal experience has led him to be a passionate advocate for those struggling with substance use disorders. He writes widely on addiction and drug policy for publications like Christianity Today, The Wall Street Journal, and CNN. Tim is a graduate of North Park University with degrees in biblical and theological studies and philosophy and served as the chief strategy officer for Sojourners. He lives in New Hampshire with his wife Hannah, daughter Ruth, and dog Hank.
We hope you will join us online!

Invite Your Friends
Please feel free to forward this information to attorneys 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 attorneys 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, please email CLS at email@example.com, so we can keep you in the loop on our upcoming plans and speakers.
