Schutt directs the Institute for Christian Legal Studies, a cooperative ministry of Regent University School of Law and the Christian Legal Society, whose goal is to encourage Christian law students, law professors, and practicing lawyers to seek and study Biblical truth, including the natural law tradition, as it relates to law and legal institutions, and to encourage them toward spiritual growth, compassionate outreach to the poor and needy, and the integration of faith with learning, teaching, and legal practice.
