There was a time when lawyers were known as counselors-at-law. They were trained not just for a job, but also for a higher service. At Regent University School of Law that time still exists. To produce more lawyers today is not enough. Our society needs a different kind of lawyer, one called to something higher, something greater. Regent Law exists to equip men and women who choose to respond to that call. We desire to train counselors-at-law who will practice with integrity as trusted advisors and community leaders. What makes us different from most law schools approved by the ABA is that we thoroughly integrate a Christian perspective into the classroom. We are committed to the proposition that there are truths — eternal principles of justice — informing the way we should practice law and about the law itself.
Regent Law students receive a rigorous legal education from an internationally acclaimed faculty that is deeply committed to students’ academic and spiritual success. Our faculty is composed of 25 full-time faculty members and about 30 part-time and adjunct faculty members.
Regent’s law faculty has an average of 12 years of full-time practice experience behind them, substantially more than that of recently hired faculty at ABA-approved law schools nationwide.
Our faculty includes distinguished professors, such as former Attorney General John Ashcroft and American Center for Law and Justice Chief Counsel Dr. Jay Sekulow.
Our faculty members attended many of the nation’s finest schools, including Harvard, Yale, Duke, The University of Chicago, University of Virginia, and others.
As excellent legal scholars, practitioners, and professors, our faculty publish in legal journals, perform pro bono work, and address issues of social justice. They are also active in the emerging sphere of international law.
Commitment to Student Success
For all their legal expertise and experience, however, what truly makes our faculty so loved by our students is their accessibility, engaging pedagogy, and commitment to serving the student body.
Mindful of their duty to serve others, Regent Law professors balance the exacting discipline of a legal education with a friendly and supportive commitment to their students’ success.
Law Is More Than A Profession…
When students leave Regent Law, they possess a foundation in legal learning and skills that will support them throughout their careers.
They also remember an essential lesson taught by every Regent Law professor: “Law is more than a profession, it’s a calling.” And that makes all the difference to them and those they serve.
