Our democratic republic is based on the rule of law, which protects us from anarchy and mob rule. However most have lost the understanding of the foundation of western law, and that law itself has rules or boundaries that our founders understood and called “the laws of nature and natures God.” This knowledge both guides and restricts human law and protects our inalienable rights given by our Creator. As an expert on law, Mat will help bring light and understanding to not only our liberties, but our rights to defend that liberty.”Staver has a B.A. in Theology from Southern Missionary College, an M.A. in Religion from Andrews University, and a J.D. from the University of Kentucky. He has argued before the Supreme Court of the United States twice and has argued before most of the federal courts of appeals.Staver served as the Dean of the law school at Liberty University from 2006 to 2014.He founded Liberty Council in 1989.Liberty Counsel is an international nonprofit litigation, education, and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life, and the family since 1989, by providing pro bono assistance and representation on these and related topics.
