“Regent definitely prepared me every step of the way, from a summer internship and moot court competitions to working with Singer Legal Group and securing a clerkship. I wouldn’t have had those same opportunities anywhere else.”

Kevin Hoffman, J.D., 2014

“I would put Regent up against the finest law schools. Regent provided me with a top-notch legal education. Quality academic instruction is required of any law school, but Regent went a step further by providing faculty and staff who genuinely cared for and supported the students.”

Teresa Hammons, J.D., 1988

“I spent a summer as a Regent Center for Global Justice intern, working on immigration issues, and contributing to a win for three asylum cases. This confirmed a distinct calling on my life to seek justice and advocate for the oppressed.”

Emily Arthur, J.D., 2015

“Regent gave me an understanding of how to think about law and how to think like a lawyer; it also gave me practical classes and training to do good and help people.”

Corrynn Peters, Juris Doctor (J.D.), 2003 Founding Partner of Phillips & Peters, PLLC
