Regent Wins 1st Annual Virginia “Legal Food Frenzy”

Regent Law has won the Law School division of the first annual Virginia “Legal Food Frenzy,” organized by the office of the State Attorney General, Bob McDonnell. McDonnell, a Regent Law alum, spearheaded the campaign to help Virginia’s hungry by calling on the legal community in the state to donate food throughout the spring. A number of categories and sub-categories were recognized, including law firms of various sizes and law schools, with winners being announced based on the total weight of food donated as well as pounds of food donated per capita. Regent Law won both law school categories, donating 4,231 pounds of food, which worked out to 10.07 pounds per person.
