Who We Are

While we are proud that 88% of our graduating seniors are admitted to law school, we know that getting to law school is not the ultimate goal. Instead, our purpose is to help students consider how they will live out God’s calling through the legal profession.

Chris Riley, Pre-Law Advisor

Not every program across campus has the privilege of a dedicated faculty advisor to see our students through their journey. Chris Riley, assistant professor of political science and criminal justice, serves as ACU’s pre-law advisor to guide your preparation for law school. He holds a J.D. from Texas Tech School of Law and an M.P.A from Penn State. Prof. Riley has practiced law since 2003, serving as a court law clerk, an attorney in private practice at a large law firm and as one of ACU’s in-house attorneys.
