Law Professor Featured in U.S. News & World Report Article

U.S. News & World Report recently featured Associate Professor and Director of Regent’s LL.M. and M.A. Programs James Davids in an article on online LL.M. programs.

Professor Davids highlighted the versatility of online LL.M.s, which enable international lawyers to pursue a degree in American law without relocating. 

“I am very pleased to have Professor Davids and Regent featured so prominently in this U.S. News piece,” says Regent Law Dean Jeffery Brauch. “Regent Law's online LL.M. is an innovative program that truly has a global reach. I am excited to see the program grow and thrive under Professor Davids' leadership.”

Because American law is applicable worldwide, LL.M. degrees broaden international lawyers’ expertise. Regent Law’s LL.M. in American Legal Studies provides online students an academically rigorous legal education offered by a university that U.S. News recognizes as a leader in online education. By studying online, international layers can keep their jobs and save money on the housing and relocation costs they would accrue if they moved to the United States.

“As a leader in this arena, Regent will continue to receive notices like this in the future," Professor Davids states in light of the opportunity to contribute Regent Law’s perspective to the article.

The online LL.M. in American Legal Studies is one of a number of recent initiatives Regent has launched in response to changes in legal education and practice.

Regent’s part-time J.D. can now be completed entirely in the evenings. Other new programs include Integrated Lawyer Training, which equips law students to be successful attorneys through mentorship and practical skills training, and the Master of Arts in Legal Studies, designed for professionals who are interested in legal education and professional advancement but do not desire to practice as an attorney.
