Success Stories

“I was incredibly blessed to learn from committed men and women who were so knowledgeable about their field. They were also just as passionate and committed to their faith and investing in their students.”

Rebekah Woods, Doctor of Organizational Leadership, J.D., 2004, 1994

“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

“Regent Law gave me a high-quality education delivered by passionate professors who brilliantly integrated biblical principles into rigorous curriculum. The collegiality of professors and peers also stands out. I can't imagine you get that blend at any other ABA-approved school.”

Bradley Knox, J.D., 1994 Life & Health Insurance Vice President & Counsel, Federal Relations, Aflac, Inc., Washington, D.C.

“The program at Regent is incredibly rigorous — but it's just a wonderful environment to learn and grow, and it's been invaluable in my life.”

Katherine Nace, J.D., 2015
