Come to Israel with Regent Law Summer 2011…

Festive Messianic music, a slide show of colorful trip photos, and a delicious deli lunch welcomed students to Regent Law’s 2011 Summer Program in Israel information session Tuesday.

Hosted by Program Director, Professor Robert ‘Skip’ Ash, the session gave students a basic overview of the program goals and objectives; trip dates, tentative itinerary and costs, and the criteria for participation.

Professor Ash introduced Professor Joseph Kickasola, with whom he shares teaching responsibility during the three-week trip. Participants will earn three credit-hours toward their degree in either the Law School or the School of Government. Two courses will be taught during the mornings, one comparing the Biblical and Qu’ranic ideas of war and another addressing aspects of international law in modern-day Israel.

Several participants from previous trips commented on the “experience of a lifetime” afforded by the Summer Program in Israel. Regent Law 3L Jesse Weiss said, “It’s a great experience … you’ll never get to sit down with an Israeli Supreme Court justice in any other tour, and you’ll get to see behind the scenes when you visit a military tribunal,” he says. “Plus, you get to see all of Israel … If you really want to get a grasp of what is going on in that part of the world, I would really encourage all of you to take advantage of this opportunity!”

This year’s program is being opened to students from other graduate schools at Regent as well as students from other law schools. Participation is on a first-come-first served basis, and registration begins in early January. Students are encouraged to sign up at their earliest convenience.

Constitution Day Explores Fifth Amendment: Should You Talk to the Police?

Life, liberty, pursuit of happiness and the right to due process: Regent University School of Law (LAW), Roberson School of Government (RSG) and College of Arts & Sciences (CAS) explored the Fifth Amendment promised to citizens in the United States Constitution on Monday, September 18.

Each year, Regent celebrates the nationwide observance of “Constitution Day,” a day commemorating the signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787.

To commemorate this year, LAW professor James Duane and Hampton Commonwealth’s Attorney Anton Bell presented their perspectives on “Finding Common Ground for Criminal Justice: Exploring the Fifth Amendment.”

Duane spelled out his perspective on the Fifth Amendment from his recently published book that explores cases in which innocent parties have self-incriminated in criminal cases due to a lack of proper “lawyering up” before talking to police.
