Attorney-in-Residence Addresses Law Chapel

Randy Singer is a pastor, critically acclaimed author, president of FamilyNet television, and attorney-in-residence at Regent Law. So when asked to address last Thursday’s Law Chapel participants it comes as no surprise that he drew from his God-given years of varied experience and wisdom when challenging students, faculty, and staff.

Referencing Acts 19:8-22 which recounts the Apostle Paul bringing the gospel to the city of Ephesus, Singer discussed the Apostle Paul’s fearless pursuit and distribution of the gospel. He compared that to today’s Christians who claim to desire the advancement of the gospel, but all the while retreat to Christian safe-zones. “The gospel is not meant to be a fortress but a battering ram,” he said.

After commending Regent Law, which ensures a solid Christian foundation and integration of faith into the study and practice of law, Singer encouraged listeners “not to get comfortable at a place like Regent.” He went on to offer that “God wants us to integrate His law and His truth in every aspect of whatever area of law we choose to practice.”  According to Singer there are no “secular” fields of law or offices from which to practice because “God wants authority over every square-inch of creation,” including places that are not overtly Christian.

He then went on to share a brief clip from the TV show Undercover Boss, a program in which heads of major corporations go undercover to work the entry level positions of their own companies. By the end of the clip the boss was astounded at the upbeat attitude and adventurous spirit of his employee who emptied and cleaned portable toilets for a living.

“Christ is the ultimate undercover boss,” Singer said after reading Matt. 25:35-40 which states, “… to the extent that you did it to one of the least of these brothers of Mine… you did it to Me.”  Singer said that when you are serving the least of your clients, you are serving the Lord. “What sanctifies [the legal profession] is not the type of law that you practice but the heart that you bring to it.”

Singer concluded by speaking to the power of living by faith in God, and not by our own efforts. “It should be ordinary for Christians to have extraordinary things happen in their lives, but only if the extraordinary is sought for the purpose of glorifying God, not ourselves."

Regent University School of Law Students Give Back to the Hampton Roads Community

Before their schedules are overruled with rigorous coursework and challenging lectures, Regent University School of Law students give back to the Hampton Roads Community.

In mid-August, Regent Law’s Office of Career & Alumni Services hosted the 9th Annual Community Service Day. Some 140 participants including Regent Law students, faculty, deans, staff, alumni, and members of the James Kent Inn of Court and their families tackled tasks at Union Mission, the Southeast Virginia Foodbank, St. Mary’s Home for Disabled Children and the Bridge Christian Fellowship Church. Each year the effort is encouraged by Regent Law to remind students that law, in the name of Christ, is about having a servant’s heart: putting others first in a career teeming with a countering reputation. Ashna Desai, 2L, spent her time volunteering at the Union Mission. Her team unpacked donated winter clothes and prepared them for sale or distribution by the organization. Desai said that the day of volunteering in t…

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.
