Regent University Law School Named NDAA Regional Advocacy Training Center

VIRGINIA BEACH, VA (July 19, 2021) – Regent University School of Law is pleased to announce its designation as a Regional Advocacy Training Center for the National District Attorneys Association (NDAA). Prosecutors throughout the region will now have access to Regent Law’s premier facilities and resources through customized NDAA training courses in Virginia Beach, VA. This prestigious designation was unveiled to Regent Law Dean Mark Martin by the NDAA Board of Directors during the association’s Summer Summit, taking place July 18-20, 2021, in Virginia Beach.

“The Regent University School of Law is honored to partner with the National District Attorneys Association in providing exceptional on-site training to our prosecutors,” said Regent Law Dean Mark Martin. “Just as this respected association is committed to protecting the rights and safety of the people to ensure justice is attained, our astute Regent Law faculty, students, and alumni are also dedicated to providing knowledge, skills, and support to the legal profession to promote the fair and impartial administration of justice.”

During the summit, Martin had the honor and privilege of swearing in the incoming NDAA president, the Honorable Billy West, who has served as District Attorney for Cumberland County, NC since 2011.

“I had the privilege of knowing the remarkable work and reputation of Chief Mark Martin as he served as Supreme Court Chief Justice of North Carolina. Now, to partner with him and the Regent University School of Law is a tremendous privilege,” said West. “I look forward to a bright future and innovative training opportunities.”
