Success Story

Rebecca Garcia, Regent Law school alumna.

Regent Law’s writing program particularly taught me one of the most important skills of an attorney: the art of objectivity and persuasion through the use of the pen. Regent also prepared me well for both my state and federal post-graduate judicial clerkships.
