The American Center for Law and Justice has formed a partnership with an international law school in South Korea.
The program at the Handong International Law School is designed to provide education and training for law students in U.S. and international law.
ACLJ Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow said there's a growing need for attorneys around the world to protect religious freedom.
"This partnership with Handong International Law School is encouraging and sets the stage for a new and exciting outreach for the ACLJ and our international affiliates," Sekulow said.
"At a time when Christians face increasing discrimination, violence, and even death for practicing their faith, it's critical to provide training and experience for the next generation of defenders - attorneys committed to protecting religious freedom," he added.
The Christian legal group has already established offices in Europe, as well as Russia, Kenya, Pakistan, and Israel.
Sekulow said the South Korean office will enable the ACLJ to begin working in Asia, one of the fastest-growing continents in the world.
