Handong International Law School

Handong International Law School (HILS) is based in Pohang, Korea and provides an American-style JD program for students from all over the world. Regent Law and HILS have a great partnership, working together in various capacities.

One such collaborative endeavor is through the Center for Global Justice, Human Rights, and the Rule of Law. Every year, the Center provides grants to a number of HILS students who secure internships with human rights organizations. Past interns have served in Mongolia, Cambodia, Malaysia, and Pakistan, and work on issues like protecting persecuted believers, combating sex trafficking, reforming corrupt judicial systems, and securing asylum for refugees. 

Beyond internships, the Center Student Staff is partnering with HILS on advancing religious freedom in Asia, particularly in Mongolia where Christians face serious persecution. The plan is that students from HILS will intern in Mongolia with Christian attorneys and then bring back projects for HILS students and the Student Staff to work on. Through this partnership, we believe we can make a drastic impact in protecting the persecuted and advancing religious freedom in Mongolia. We are excited for these opportunities and look forward to what God will do in the future.
