Regent Law Prof. Eleanor Brown is one of the “Best Lawyers in Virginia”

Regent Law professor, Eleanor Brown has been named one of the “Best Lawyers in Virginia” for the 4th year in a row by Virginia Business Magazine.

Brown is a tax law expert and has been a professor at Regent Law since 2003.

“The selection is of course a great honor,” said Regent Law Dean and fellow professor Jeffrey Brauch. “But here is why it matters so much to our students. Sadly, many law school faculties today are filled with brilliant scholars who have never really practiced law. I think it is a real strength of Regent that our students learn from exceptionally bright people who are also great lawyers. Indeed, the vast majority of my colleagues had substantial practice experience before coming to teach. And it’s is our students who benefit most.”

One of Brown’s recent articles on conservation easement tax credits is being included as a chapter in a forthcoming book to be published Oxford Press.
