Foundation’s “Intern-National” Program

Last summer, Foundation attorney Col. John Eidsmoe taught a Constitutional Litigation course at Handong International Law School (http://lawschool NULL.handong NULL.edu/english/default NULL.asp) (HILS), which is part of Handong Global University (http://old NULL.handong NULL.edu/n_english/main NULL.asp) (HGU) in Pohang, South Korea. As Col. Eidsmoe explained in his post about that visit (http://morallaw NULL.org/blog/?p=878), Handong describes itself as a “worldchanging global Christian university” with a goal of training “honest intellectuals with a Christian world view” and “honest Christian laymen who will change the world through a spirit of love, humility, and service for the glory of God.”

This year, as a continuation of the Foundation’s relationship with Handong, we have hosted several Handong law students through a new internship program at our offices in Montgomery, Alabama–an intern-national program, if you will. These bright Korean students with a heart for the Lord and for serving others come to America—some for the very first time—and give between 1 week to 3 weeks of their time to help us in doing the work that Col. Eidsmoe taught them about last year.

In return, the Handong interns learn more about the U.S. Constitution and our heritage of religious freedom as well as the inter-workings of a nonprofit legal organization. For many of the interns, this is the first time they can so plainly see the necessary connection between God’s law and man’s law—a relationship that has been severely eroded in modern times but is being rediscovered through schools like Handong, Regent University School of Law (http://www NULL.regent NULL.edu/acad/schlaw/) (my alma mater), and Liberty University School of Law (http://law NULL.liberty NULL.edu/). More practically, we also assist the Handong interns with their goal of taking the bar exam here in America after their graduation from Handong.

Since January of this year, seven (7) Handong students have interned with us, two of whom are pictured below with Judge Roy Moore.  By September we expect to have hosted eleven (11) students total.

In addition to acquiring a taste for Korean food, we have been greatly blessed by the work and character of the fine law students from Handong. Our countries and cultures may be quite different, but we serve the same God and have the same desire to see people and laws submitted to the Lordship of Christ. May the students of Handong, and every other law school, strive to “Do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with your God.” (Micah 6:8)
