School of Law Graduates Getting Jobs

By Brett Wilson | March 20, 2014

In a competitive legal job market, Regent University School of Law students are successfully making their way into the profession. From the graduating class of 2013, 83 percent reported in an annual survey that they are employed, including eight graduates who are serving in prestigious judicial clerkships.

From the moment students set foot on campus in their first year, the School of Law professors stress more than just understanding the ins-and-outs of a legal education. With programs such as Regent's Integrated Lawyer Training (ILT) program as well as the Center for Global Justice, Human Rights, and the Rule of Law, students have opportunities for hands-on training in legal skills, ethics and professionalism throughout their three years of study.

Jeffrey Brauch, dean of the School of Law, explained that he is not surprised by the success of the recent graduates, and he is very grateful that their legal training is being utilized in positions both nationally and internationally.

"From day one in their careers, our students are ready to serve with excellence and integrity and are ready to make a difference in the lives of their clients and their communities," said Brauch. "It's a joy to see them begin their careers in such influential roles."

Darius Davenport, director of career and alumni services for the School of Law, explained that the strength behind the numbers reaches further than just a positive review of job reports. Davenport said the percentages of graduates landing jobs increased 19 percent from 2012 graduates—with a 23 percent increase in jobs that require a bar admission in tandem with their law degrees.

"These numbers are a testament to the fact that our students are trained well and are performing well," said Davenport. "Not only in the court room but in the interview room as well."
