You are bright, motivated, and interested in law. You want to pursue an education that will prepare you to be an attorney with a passion for justice who will make a lasting impact on the world. So, why Regent Law?
Of the more than 200 fully accredited law schools in the United States, Regent Law offers a unique combination of a Christ-centered mission, a first-rate faculty and academic program, and high levels of student satisfaction.
Academic Quality: Regent Law’s comprehensive and skills-intensive curriculum prepares students to enter the legal field of their choice. For the past two bar exam cycles (July ’17 and February ’18), Regent Law had the highest overall passage rate on the VA bar exam. Our JD job placement numbers are now the highest in the history of the School of Law and rival those of several top-tier law schools. The National Association for Law Placement (NALP) employment rates for the Class of 2017 were 91% at 10 months and 37% at graduation, with 11.5% securing judicial clerkships.
Regent Law earned the following rankings and honors this past year:
Our academic centers reflect the belief that education must be holistic and extends beyond the classroom.
Furthermore, Regent Law’s innovative and successful Honors Program attracts highly qualified applicants. The Honors Class of 2017 had a 100% bar passage rate nationwide and also had a perfect 10-month placement rate—100% of Honors Graduates secured full-time, long-term employment that either requires bar admission or in which a JD provides an advantage.
Scholars: Regent Law faculty members are experienced and highly credentialed with law degrees from schools such as Harvard, Chicago, Virginia, William and Mary, Georgetown, and, of course, Regent. Our distinguished faculty includes former United States Attorney General John Ashcroft and the Chief Counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice, Dr. Jay Sekulow. Other faculty members have taught at, among other schools, Harvard Law and William & Mary Law. While our faculty have extensive practice experience and have published several leading law treatises, what truly sets them apart is their commitment, as Christian legal scholars, to integrate faith thoroughly in and outside the classroom and mentor the next generation of lawyers.
Impactful Alumni: Regent Law has a national and international network of accomplished alumni in the legal profession, including judges, legislators, in-house counsel of major corporations, a Harvard Law lecturer, a William & Mary Law faculty member, the executive director of the American Center for Law & Justice, a senior adviser to a 2016 Presidential Campaign, an associate general counsel for the University of Virginia, and numerous JAG Officers. Our graduates are at the center of prominent litigation, including arguing successfully before the United States Supreme Court: https://www.regent.edu/school-of-law/centers-initiatives/career-alumni-services/.
Student Satisfaction: Our talented student body is vibrant, motivated, welcoming, and highly satisfied with their Regent Law experience. The most recent national Law School Survey of Student Engagement revealed that, in all areas surveyed our students expressed satisfaction consistently significantly above—and often more than double—the national average.
Mission—Old and New, National and Global: Our mission is to place our students and graduates strategically across the country and around the world. Grounded in the best of the old and the new, we lay a foundation of first principles of law, the Western Legal and Common Law traditions, and American Constitutionalism, while equipping students with the contemporary knowledge base and skills necessary to thrive in any law-related discipline.
