The Thomas Goode Jones School of Law is a law school located at Faulkner University in Montgomery, Alabama. Faulkner University is a religious school affilitated with the churches of Christ.

The Jones School of Law was founded in 1928 by Montgomery County Circuit Judge Walter B. Jones. The law school is named after Thomas G. Jones, an alumnus of the Virginia Military Institute, veteran of the Civil War, Democratic politician, and Governor of Alabama.

On June 10, 2006, the school was granted provisional approval by the American Bar Association. With ABA accredidation, students may take the bar exam and practice law in any state.

Graduates from the law school have done extremely well in the previous years on the Alabama Bar Exam. The bar passage rate, for first time takers of the July 2006 bar exam, was 97.2.

In addition to a rigorous cirriculum, the law school has several clinics, which provide students more hands on experience and real world legal experience. Students may participate in the school's Mediation Clinic, the Family Violence Clinic and the school's Elder Law Clinic. The law school recently received a federal grant which provides funding for the school's Elder Law Clinic. The Elder Law Clinic allows students to counsel and provide legal advice to elderly citizens in the middle Alabama region.
