The Dean, Jeffrey Brauch, gives an address. There’s music, awards of recognition, and a time for students to publicly give thanks and honor where it’s due.
And perhaps most importantly, there’s prayer.
Regent Law believes that being a lawyer requires honesty, integrity, and a commitment to justice and eternal truths.
So when law students graduate, the law community prays that God will help them uphold these principles as they work out their calling as public defenders, as human rights advocates, as small and big firm attorneys, as servants of the public good.
The annual Commissioning Ceremony reminds the Regent Law School community that law is indeed more than a profession.
It’s a calling.
