Falwell attended private schools in the Lynchburg area, attending Lynchburg Christian Academy, where he graduated in 1980, and attended Liberty University, where he obtained his Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies in 1984. Falwell then attended the University of Virginia School of Law, where he obtained his Juris Doctor degree in 1987.

Since 1987, he has served in private practice, being the General Counsel of his father's entities, serving on the Board of Trustees of Liberty University in 2000, and later serving Vice Chancellor from 2003 until his father's death, and as Chancellor since then.

Shortly after obtaining his law degree, he married Becki Tilley of Chapel Hill, NC. They have three children -- Jerry Lamon III (born 1989), Charles Wesley (born 1993), and Caroline Grace (2000). They live in Bedford County, Virginia.
