Regent Law School hosts Virginia Supreme Court Chief Justice Leroy Rountree Hassell, Sr

During the second week of March, 2008, Regent Law School hosted Virginia Supreme Court Chief Justice Leroy Rountree Hassell, Sr. Long-time friend of the Regent community and a Jurist-in-Residence, Justice Hassell lectured in law classes, inspired student groups, addressed student leaders, and spoke at the school’s weekly chapel. His annual visits offer invaluable insight into the rigors of the courtroom and the value of Christians in the profession.

This year, Justice Hassell also presented a $500 award to student Erin McCormick, winner of the First Annual Honorable Leroy Rountree Hassell, Sr. Writing Competition. McCormick’s article, Sex, Psychology, and the Religious “Gerrymander”: Why the APA’s New Policy Hurts Religious Freedom will be published in an upcoming Regent University Law Review.
