VIRGINIA BEACH, VA (Feb. 21, 2023) – Princeton Review has once again included Regent Law in its listing of The Best 168 Law Schools in 2023.  Regent Law has consistently been recognized in this influential college guide, which assesses metrics such as admissions selectivity, academic rigor, student satisfaction, quality and accessibility of professors, campus life, and career prospects at the nation’s law schools.

“It’s terrific to see Princeton Review recognize the quality of our program of legal education,” said Brad Lingo, dean of Regent University School of Law. “These ratings confirm that students appreciate our excellent and dedicated faculty, supportive community, and commitment to providing a high-quality legal education grounded in truth.”

Six of the 14 ranking lists were tallied using both student and administrator-reported data, five solely from student data, and the remaining three solely from administrator data.

Regent Law received strong marks on a rating scale from 60-99, with 99 being the highest, in many categories, including:

  • Professors: Accessibility: 98
  • Professors: Teaching: 96
  • Academic Experience: 92

Regent Law’s rating for Professors: Accessibility was tied for the highest score in the nation among the 168 law schools that were surveyed, its score of 96 for Professors: Teaching tied for 16th best in the nation, and its score for overall Academic Experience was tied for 38th.

Lingo added, “There’s no law faculty in the country as dedicated as ours.  We’re fully committed as a faculty to discipling our students.  This accolade reflects our dedication to that commitment.”
