Welcome to Regent Law

At Regent University School of Law, earn your J.D., LL.M., M.A. or B.A. to gain the expert legal reasoning necessary to lead the change you want to see. With Christ-centered truth and justice as your compass, Regent Law can equip you to succeed.

Why Should You Earn a Juris Doctor?

Many students pursue a Juris Doctor (J.D.) to prepare for the bar exam and the courtroom. According to the Association of American Law Schools (AALS), a J.D. is “the first professional law degree required to practice law in the United States.” However, the legal field is vast, and the credentials of a J.D. can lead to impactful opportunities for attorneys, judges, policymakers, and other positions of great influence and leadership. A J.D., typically a three-year degree, signals an advanced level of expertise and specialization that empowers a professional future with choices. The Regent Law program is rigorous, but the tools and experience it provides are rewarding. Regent Law graduates advance as practice-ready professionals, prepared to serve and succeed as Christian Leaders to Change the World.

Hear From Regent Law Graduates

“There were plenty of other law schools. But I told my family, ‘If I don’t go to Regent, I’m not going to law school at all.’”

Jim Mischel Jr., J.D., 1996 CEO, Electric Mirror; CEO Safeology

“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 really prepares students to face the legal field’s constant changes. The professors teach you how to research. Even though I never took business law classes that might be helpful now, I’ve been given the tools to find the answers I need.”

Kristen Jurjevich, J.D., 2010

“I had always prayed about going to a Christian law school. My experience at Regent exceeded my expectations.”

Lina Sophat, LLM, 2011 American Legal Studies

“At Regent, I became interested in issues of social justice. A big part of my calling is really around leveraging the market to do good. I believe if God is leading students here, He will open the door to a meaningful role where they are making a difference in people’s lives.”

Kyle Westaway, J.D., 2006 Lecturer, Harvard Law; Managing Partner, Westaway Brooklyn, New York
