“At Regent, I became interested in issues of social justice. A big part of my calling is really around leveraging the market to do good. I believe if God is leading students here, He will open the door to a meaningful role where they are making a difference in people’s lives.”

Kyle Westaway, J.D., 2006 Lecturer, Harvard Law; Managing Partner, Westaway Brooklyn, New York

“So much of my teaching style and philosophy is modeled after that of Regent Law deans and professors. I am working in my calling and love equipping my students for their calling too through the gift of teaching the Lord has given me.”

Adeline Allen, J.D., 2011

“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

“Regent really prepares students to face the legal field’s constant changes. The professors teach you how to research. Even though I never took business law classes that might be helpful now, I’ve been given the tools to find the answers I need.”

Kristen Jurjevich, J.D., 2010

“I'm very grateful to have been afforded the opportunity to serve as Judge Manion's law clerk. Seeing the federal appellate judicial process firsthand has been an unparalleled learning experience. I believe that Regent prepared me for this job through opportunities to hone my writing and research skills in core classes and on the Regent Law Review.”

Maxwell Thelen, J.D., 2012
