Chris Klicka Joins HSLDA Staff
Chris Klicka, a 1985 graduate of the law school at Oral Roberts University, joined the HSLDA staff as executive director this summer. Chris is taking the Virginia bar examination, and expects to be licensed as an attorney during October.
Chris has worked for some of the leading homeschool attorneys in the nation. During the summer of 1984, Chris worked for John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute in Manassas, Virginia. Chris researched and wrote a 250-page legal analysis of homeschool laws in the 50 states for the Rutherford Institute. Chris also worked for Professor John Eidsmoe at the O.W. Coburn School of Law at Oral Roberts University. Chris researched legal issues on homeschooling and other First Amendment issues. John Eidsmoe successfully argued the Budtke case before the Minnesota Supreme Court, and has written several books on constitutional law and Christians in government.
Michael Farris, HSLDA president, praised Chris’ abilities and looked forward to his contributions to HSLDA. “Chris is very knowledgeable about homeschool laws around the nation,” Farris said. “He is well-equipped to help HSLDA families.”
Chris grew up in eastern Wisconsin, and graduated with a B.A. in history and religion in 1982 from Grove City College in Pennsylvania. Chris is married.
