“I'm honored to be where I am right now. The Museum of the Bible and Regent are a big part of that.”

Joshua Charles, J.D., 2017 Bestselling Author, Historian, Researcher, & Speaker

“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

“At Regent, it was 'law first' and then we talked about how the law is influenced by the spiritual and moral side—that was a valuable lesson I'll always be thankful to Regent for providing.”

Elizabeth Beavers, J.D., 2012

“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 learned all I could at Regent, because I knew He would eventually draw it all back out of me to use for someone else’s good.”
