Regent Law Hosts Judicial Internship Banquet

On Tuesday, June 7th Regent Law’s office of Career & Alumni Services held its 7th Annual Judicial Internship Banquet at Founder’s Inn.

Among the guests at this year’s banquet were the Hon. Raymond Jackson from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, alumna the Hon. Teresa Hammons (’88) from the Virginia Beach District Court, the Hon. Colon Whitehurst, Chief Judge from the Chesapeake General District Court, and 23 student interns (pictured).

Other event speakers included keynote speaker the Honorable Robert Humphreys of the Court of Appeals of Virginia, Jeffrey Brauch, Dean of Regent Law, and Alexis Fenell, student intern for the Virginia Beach General District Court.

“As a rising 2L who aspires to be a clerk, the Judicial Internship Program has provided me with invaluable experience in the courtroom seeing the judicial process take place,” said Fenell. “As I plan to practice law in Virginia this internship has given me the opportunity to familiarize myself with the local court system.”

Regent Law began the Judicial Internship Program in 1998 to provide students with experience working in the local court system. Intern projects may include writing legal memorandums, researching court proceedings, and touring jails or detention facilities.
