Success Stories

“Without funding for a law degree, I was ready to give up on my dream. Then, Regent contacted me about their honors program and a full-ride scholarship. I said, 'All right, God; I guess this is your answer. I’m going.'”

Joe Addink, Juris Doctor (J.D.), 2019 Associate District Attorney, Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office

“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 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

“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

“When I began working for the state of Texas, I immediately began putting the values of servant leadership and ethics I learned at Regent into practice. My Christian faith holds me together and helps me fight tooth-and-nail as an advocate for justice. ”

Grace Pandithurai, J.D., 2010 Assistant District Attorney
