The state of the family in culture opens up incredible opportunities for the body of Christ to offer new hope to a struggling world, particularly in family life and law. Teaching, researching, serving and publishing in the areas that affect families and Family Law, I have the privilege of teaching family law from a biblical perspective toward family restoration.

Lynne Marie Kohm, law professor, author, lawyer, speaker, and discipleship mentor, is dedicated to family restoration through the application of Christian legal principles. As the John Brown McCarty Professor of Family Law at Regent University School of Law, and a wife of 20+ years, a (homeschooling) mother of two, and leader in the realm of state and volunteer bar service, Professor Kohm brings a servant leadership model of family preservation and restoration to the practice of family law.

Her blog offers insightful commentary on contemporary legal matters pertaining to the family—from the unique perspective of a homeschool mother and attorney.
