Regent University Law School is one of the nation's most outstanding law schools, according to The Princeton Review—a company that assesses school districts across the United States and networks prospective students with college and career resources. Regent Law ranked second for "Candidates for Heritage Foundation Fellowships" and seventh for "Best Student Life" in Princeton Review's latest book Best 174 Law Schools: 2009 Edition.
"We select schools for this book based on our high regard for their academic programs and offerings, institutional data we collect from the schools, and the candid opinions of students attending them who rate and report on their campus experiences at the schools," said Robert Franek, vice president of publishing for The Princeton Review. "We are pleased to recommend Regent to readers of our book and users of our website as one of the best institutions they could attend to earn a law degree."
The Princeton Review does not rank the schools in the book on a single hierarchical list from 1 to 174, or name one law school best overall. Instead, the book has 11 ranking lists of the top ten law schools in various categories. Ten lists are based on The Princeton Review's surveys of 18,000 students attending the 174 law schools profiled in the book.
