Regent's Law Professors Recognized in The Princeton Review

In its annual law school rankings, The Princeton Review has recognized Regent University School of Law's faculty as among the top ten in the nation. The rankings are generated from student surveys conducted across the United States each year to help prospective students to find the school that is best suited for them.

"I am gratified to see The Princeton Review's recognition of the outstanding law faculty we have at Regent University School of Law,” Jeffrey Brauch law school dean.

“These men and women are excellent teachers and are dedicated to teaching students with rigor and excellence. In addition, they care personally and deeply for our students and invest in their lives. It's a joy to be a part of this learning community."

The 2013 survey placed Regent Law professors among a select group of law schools including Duke, Stanford, Washington and Lee, and the University of Virginia. The Princeton Review surveyed more than 18,500 students at 169 law schools, in addition to collecting data from school administrators, to create school profiles and ranking lists in 11 categories.

"This recognition is a testament to the law faculty’s dedication to the mission of the law school. We are here to prepare each student to practice law selflessly and to be a focal point for positive change in the world," said Darius Davenport, director of Regent Law's Career and Alumni Services.

"It also embodies the faculty and staff's desire to go beyond legal theory and provide a comprehensive practical legal education that encompasses how students are ethically formed as lawyers and leaders in their respective communities."

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.”
