Regent’s Trial Advocacy Board Wins Big Once Again

The Regent Law community congratulates Regent’s Trial Advocacy Board, who over the weekend of Feb. 20 defeated teams from the University of Virginia, William and Mary, and the University of Richmond to capture the 2010 Texas Young Lawyers Association Regional Championship.

Regent’s team of 2L Kate Hart and 3L David Johnson, coached by 3L and fellow Trial Advocacy Board member Lu Aloupas, will now head to Dallas, Texas to face regional finalists from across the nation in the Texas Young Lawyers National Championship to be held March 24-27, 2010.

The win is the latest in a string of Regent Trial Advocacy Board Championships including the 2009 National Pretrial Competition Championship and corresponding Best Brief/Best Oral Advocate awards, along with the Best Brief award at the 2008 National Pretrial Competition.

Prof. David Velloney, who trains trial teams along with primary Trial Advocacy Board Advisor Prof. James Duane, cites these recent wins as an encouraging sign that there are more great things in store for the Trial Advocacy program. “The students this year have capitalized on a great foundation laid by previous members of the Board,” he said. “Their work ethic and dedication to excellence demonstrate the very best that Regent Law has to offer. We’re incredibly proud of their efforts.”

Each quarter, Regent University’s Office of Academic Affairs honors faculty members with Faculty Excellence Awards.

On November 7, Regent Law professor Lynn Marie Kohm was awarded the 2017 Faculty Excellence Award in the area of service. According to Dr. Gerson Moreno-Riaño, executive vice president of Academic Affairs, Kohm “embodies the cheerful servant leader,” and claims that her most important service to LAW is her commitment to coordinating a student women’s discipleship group.

“[Kohm] exemplifies servant leadership,” said Moreno-Riaño. “She works tirelessly to promote her school to external audiences … in her faculty development role, she passionately encourages faculty to develop their research and scholarship.”

Congratulations to Professor Lynne Marie Kohm!
