Law Starts Integrated Training Program
By Brett Wilson | January 23, 2014
In addition to its efforts to reform legal education for up-and-coming lawyers and global leaders, Regent University School of Law is focusing on providing professional, hands-on training for its students.
Regent's Integrated Lawyer Training (ILT), a program available to all Regent Law students, is a response to the legal market's constant need to provide training beyond what students learn in a traditional classroom setting. Few universities take appropriate interest in ensuring their law students learn how to navigate through moral and ethical dilemmas that typically unfold in a legal workforce; ILT is revolutionizing the way law students learn.
"I am excited about this program. Through it our students will not only learn to think like lawyers, they will be equipped with the practical skills they need to be an excellent lawyer from day one," said Jeffrey Brauch, dean of the School of Law.
Brauch explained that the program is about even more than just training lawyers for a career filled with professionalism; it's about learning how their faith works into the profession as well.
"By participating in ILT, they will be prepared to display the character of Christ as they face ethical challenges that arise in the practice of law," said Brauch.
ILT offers many different avenues for students to pursue in order to gain practical and professional tools they need to effectively practice law. The program provides lawyer mentorship, matching students with local practicing lawyers—drawing from the Regent alumni and other practicing Christian lawyers around the country—as well as faculty mentorship.
Students, through ILT, will also have the opportunity to participate in field placement by working in a law office for academic credit, as well as apprenticeships for select third-year students.
