Regent Journal of Law & Public Policy

A Forum for a Christian Perspective on Law and Public Policy

The Regent Journal of Law & Public Policy (“RJLPP”) Staff selection process is open to students from both the Regent University School of Law (“Law School”) and the Robertson School of Government (“RSG”).

Law School Students

Application Requirements for prospective RJLPP members:

  • 2.5 (minimum) cumulative Law School GPA,
  • Completed 30 Law School credit hours, and
  • Participate in the annual Law School Write-On Competition

Law School Write-on Competition

Application to join the RJLPP is made by participating in and completing the annual Law School Write-On Competition.  The Law School Write-On Competition is conducted at the end of each spring semester and its completed in either one of two ways:

  • Submission of a law review style article and
  • Completion of a Bluebook exercise

Or

  • If the student ranks in the top 10% of their class (at the end of the spring semester) only completion of a Bluebook exercise is required.

Applicants should indicate the RJLPP as their primary or alternative choice.  The topic for the annual Law School Write-On Competition is chosen by the editors of the Law School’s academic journals and is the same for all applicants.

RSG Students

Application Requirements for prospective RJLPP members:

  • 3.6 (minimum) cumulative RSG GPA,
  • Completed 15 RSG credit hours,
  • Submit a writing sample connected with RSG coursework (at least 10 pages and citations in either Bluebook or Turabian Style), and
  • Complete the Bluebook exercise from the Law School Write-On Competition

Membership Selection

The editors of the Law School’s academic journals set the deadline for submission, and invitations are usually extended to desired staff members several weeks after the submission deadline (usually by early July).  All membership invitations are extended on the basis of the applicant’s performance in the Law School Write-On Competition (or quality of their writing sample and Bluebook exercise), and the RJLPP’s staff position openings for the upcoming year.
