Faculty Highlight: Dean Natt Gantt & Professor Ben Madison

Regent Law faculty stay busy with more than just teaching. As we approach the end of the fall 2012 semester, we would like to share highlights of how our faculty continue to contribute to the scholarly conversation at key conferences nationwide.

Associate Dean Natt Gantt (top photo), and Professor Ben Madison (bottom photo) participated in Educating Tomorrow's Lawyers' (ETL) first annual conference, "The Development of Professional Identity in Legal Education: Rethinking Learning and Assessment," held September 27-29, 2012, in Denver, Co.

ETL, a selective consortium of 24 law schools under the auspices of the Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System (IAALS), sponsored the conference focused on developing expertise around the formation of professional identity in legal education.

Regent Law was recently granted membership into the prestigious organization after being recognized for its pioneering work in helping Regent students develop their professional identity as they discuss ethical issues throughout the law school curriculum.

"In today's law school environment, logic and legal analysis is glorified and values and ethics are largely pushed aside," said Madison. "Yet the movement to more pervasively teach ethics in law school will probably continue to gain traction and over time become an even more important subject. I believe Regent will continue to be a leader in this field."

"Attending the conference was a tremendous opportunity to be at the table with the leaders in the legal education reform movement," said Dean Gantt. "We were able to discuss the law school's innovative work in professional identity formation, and we gleaned valuable insights that will enhance our work here at Regent."
