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.
