Regent University School of Law (LAW) students, faculty and staff contributed to the 1.5 million pounds of food collected by Virginia lawyers in the 12th Annual Legal Food Frenzy.
Each year the competition comprises 170 participating law firms, legal departments, government offices and law schools across Virginia.
Regent LAW secured the victory in the Law School Winner of Attorney General’s Cup for the third year running – and boasts donating an average of 82 pounds of food per participant – the most from any law school in Virginia.
“I am thrilled that, for the third consecutive year, Regent Law finished first among all Virginia law schools in the Legal Food Frenzy fundraiser sponsored by the Attorney General of Virginia, the Young Lawyers Division of The Virginia Bar Association, and the Federation of Virginia Food Banks,” said Michael Hernandez. “Our best in state ranking reflects our Christian mission and commitment to public service and to supporting those in need. Hats off especially to Judge Patricia West and the Career Services team, who lead this fundraising initiative.”
Regent LAW raised funds for the annual initiative by encouraging the community to participate in Dunk-a-Dean, where students donate money to submerge select members of LAW faculty in ice cold water.
