Professor Schutt directs the Institute for Christian Legal Studies (ICLS), a cooperative ministry of Regent Law and the Christian Legal Society. Through ICLS, Regent seeks to encourage Christian law students, professors, and lawyers to seek and study Biblical truth as it relates to law and legal institutions. Professor Schutt also serves InterVarsity Christian Fellowship as the national coordinator of its Law School Ministry.
Schutt is excited about working with other ministries because it is truly kingdom work, and it allows Regent Law School to encourage and serve others who are not on campus. His passion is to see Christians in the profession live lives of integrity that evidence faithful thinking about the substance of their callings, loving their neighbors in and through the law. Schutt is the author of Redeeming Law: Christian Calling and the Legal Profession (InterVarsity Press 2007), an exhortation to students and lawyers on Christian integrity in the law. Before joining the Regent Law faculty, he practiced law in Fort Worth, Texas. He and his wife, Lisa, have three children.
