Success Stories

“As a young women who was raised in a Christian family in the Middle East, I cannot thank you enough for choosing to extend this kind support to me. ”

May-Lee Melki, J.D., 2023 Scholarship Recipient

“When it comes to higher education, it’s about giving students every opportunity to succeed and making sure they have the tools to walk out God’s calling. I've been given so much opportunity and a fantastic education at Regent; if that doesn't set me up to help someone else, what will? ”

Stephanie Iaquinto, Ph. D., 1996 Communications

“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

“As part of its overt and clear commitment to raise up Christian leaders to change the world, Regent provides an environment that encourages its students to abide in Christ; but it will also take your active commitment to abide in Christ for your legal calling to truly be fulfilled in your life.”

Bobby Maddox, J.D., 2001

“The Regent Mentoring Program has been a great experience both in my law school career and beyond. My mentor is Ashley Warner, and we met at the end of my 1L summer. Ashley provided great insight and encouragement regarding the challenges of law school. We stayed in touch after our initial meeting and I interned at the same firm where she practiced during the summer after my 2L year. After graduation from Regent Law, I practiced law at that same firm.”

Stockton Brown, Mentoring Program Mentee
