Career & Alumni Services
Career & Alumni Services maintains an extensive resource library containing materials for preparing professional resumes, drafting cover letters, researching job opportunities and identifying professional networking strategies. Students are provided career planning guides to address their needs in each year of study. Additionally, workshops and individualized counseling sessions allow students to learn about career options, identify career interests and areas of personal strength, and develop networking and interviewing skills.
Attorneys and judges from the Hampton Roads area and members of the law faculty routinely participate in panel discussions and presentations on judicial clerkships, governmental positions, private firm employment, public interest employment and nontraditional career options.
An important avenue for connecting law students with local judges and practitioners is the James Kent American Inn of Court, an amalgam of judges, lawyers, law professors and students that holds programs on ethics, legal studies and professionalism to improve the practice of law. At Regent, the James Kent American Inn of Court invites a select number of third-year students to join as student members and provides networking opportunities with members of the bar in a nonlegal setting.
