“I make it my personal mission to show the legal world that Regent offers a top-notch legal education and produces lawyers who are highly skilled in their profession and have integrity in their conduct. My goal is to inspire every attorney, judge, and client I meet to seek out Regent alumni when they are looking to hire a lawyer.”

“Regent really prepares students to face the legal field’s constant changes. The professors teach you how to research. Even though I never took business law classes that might be helpful now, I’ve been given the tools to find the answers I need.”

E. Todd Wilkowski, JD '98
Member – Frost Brown Todd, West Chester, Ohio

“I was absolutely impressed with Regent and the caliber of people I met. There's an amazing spirit about Regent when you walk on the campus. You just feel God's peace there. Unlike other law schools, there is no 'zero sum' mentality. At Regent, students encourage each other to do their best and fully prepare to fulfill their vocation rather than compete against each other.”

Teresa Hammons, JD ‘88
Presiding Judge, Virginia Beach General District Court
Virginia Beach, Virginia

“I would put Regent up against the finest law schools. Regent provided me with a top-notch legal education. Quality academic instruction is required of any law school, but Regent went a step further by providing faculty and staff who genuinely cared for and supported the students.”
