On Monday Oct. 7, as the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) opened for its new October 2013 term, 10 former Regent University School of Law students serving as staff attorneys for the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) were admitted to the Supreme Court bar.

"Moving the admission of 12 ACLJ-trained lawyers and 10 Regent Law graduates to the Supreme Court bar is a part of the vision that Dr. M.G. "Pat" Robertson had when he founded the ACLJ over 20 years ago," said Jay Sekulow '04 (School of Business & Leadership), chief counsel for ACLJ.

Sekulow is also a guest lecturer in Regent's School of Law, teaching elective courses such as Supreme Court History and seminars regarding the latest Supreme Court cases.

Regent's campus is home to one of the primary offices of the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), providing School of Law students volunteer and paid opportunities to assist ACLJ staff attorneys on international pro-family and pro-liberty cases.

Regent Law alumni Tiffany Barrans '09, Matthew Clark '08, Carly Gammill '07, Shaheryar Gill '09, Marshall Goldman '08, Jordan Sekulow '09, Abigail Southerland '07, Michelle Terry '09, Miles Terry '09 and Tyler Weiss '09, were among the 12 ACLJ attorneys joining the Supreme Court bar.

POLITICO.com, a premier publication dedicated to political and governmental news coverage, made mention of the event.
