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.

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.

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!
