Regent Law Inaugurates Eagle Award Ceremony

In January, 20 Regent Law students received Eagle Awards for earning the highest grade in Fall 2013 law school courses. The inaugural award is based on Isaiah 40:31.

“These awards celebrate the success of the recipients and our entire community,” says Douglas Cook, associate dean of academic affairs and student services.

“Scripture says we are to rejoice with those who rejoice, and that is exactly what it felt like at the ceremony. Our students were encouraged and spurred on to greater accomplishment by seeing the excellence of their classmates.”

Matthew Dunkley was pleasantly surprised when he learned that he was an Eagle Award recipient for Professor Bradley Jacob’s Christian Foundations of Law class.

“This award is a confirmation that I am exactly where I am supposed to be and that I am doing exactly what God has called me to do,” he says. “Although I sometimes doubt my ability to do well in law school, this award reminds me that God equips those whom He calls.”

Regent Law congratulates the following Eagle Award recipients: Constance Daly, Matthew Dunckley, Marie Louise Dienhart, Sean Reilly, Renee Knudsen, Sarah Schmidt, Kathleen Knudsen, Ann Hegburg, Marie Walch, Joel Ready, Brittany Jackson, Kevin Briggs, Darron Enns, Jeremy Smith, Kris Klingensmith, Jennifer Baumgardner, Katherine Nace, James Wheeler, Joseph Pricone, and Danielle Donner.

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.”



Duane spelled out his perspective on the Fifth Amendment from his recently published book that explores cases in which innocent parties have self-incriminated in criminal cases due to a lack of proper “lawyering up” before talking to police.
