ABA Affirms Regent Law Accreditation

| February 20, 2014

After a comprehensive review, the American Bar Association (ABA) has reaffirmed its full accreditation of Regent University School of Law.

"Regent Law received a very favorable report. The reviewers gave high praise for our faculty and our program of education, and they particularly emphasized our superior quality of teaching," said Jeffrey A. Brauch, dean of the law school. "They also noted the high level of respect between faculty and students."

The ABA's review process began with a site visit in fall 2012. The review team of legal educators submitted their evaluation report in mid-2013, with the ABA's formal notice of approval coming to Regent in early February 2014.

Regent Law has been fully accredited by the ABA since 1996. This is the second accreditation review that Brauch has experienced as dean, and one of several in his nearly 20 years with the school. The ABA visits each fully accredited school once every seven years. He described the intense preparation that precedes the ABA site visit, as well as ongoing work throughout the process.

"Doug Cook, our associate dean for academic affairs and student services, led the process, preparing materials for the review team and preparing us for the visit. I commend him for his diligent and excellent work," Brauch said.

For several years, Regent Law students have consistently placed well in regional and national law tournaments. In recent months, Regent Law has received a number of accolades that include being recognized among the Top 10 Law Faculty in the Nation by The Princeton Review. Last fall, Regent Law's Center for Ethical Formation and Legal Education Reform was included in PreLawInsider as among the "25 Most Innovative Ideas" in legal education reform.

Regent Law continues to offer legal education programs that prepare graduates for the changing legal marketplace.
