Regent Launches New Journal of Global Justice and Public Policy

Beginning in the 2014–2015 academic year, Regent Law will launch the Journal of Global Justice and Public Policy (JGJPP), which combines the Regent Journal of International Law (RJIL) and Regent Journal of Law and Public Policy (RJLPP). Rising 3L Aaron Lindquist will serve as editor-in-chief.

The only law journal of its kind, the JGJPP integrates law and policy with a Christian perspective to address public policy and global justice issues through legal scholarship.

“The journal offers a unique opportunity to publish relevant legal articles that are affecting law and policies across the globe,” says Matthew Poorman, editor-in-chief of the RJLPP.  “Publishing this array of topics will make it a very appealing journal for many top legal writers to submit their work for publication and impact international law and policy.”

As editor-in-chief of RJGJPP, Aaron Lindquist says his main goal is to establish the journal’s visibility and prestige within the legal scholarship community as the only international law and public policy journal with a Judeo-Christian perspective.

“I am very excited and humbled to be leading a new journal,” says Lindquist. “I have a great staff returning to serve in leadership positions and everyone is very excited at the prospect of laying a great foundation for the journal's future success. The two predecessor journals published high-quality work, and I desire to improve upon that quality and further raise the standard of our publications.”

The Journal of Global Justice and Public Policy will have an informational meeting on Monday, April 7 from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm in Robertson Hall 103.

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. Some 140 participants including Regent Law students, faculty, deans, staff, alumni, and members of the James Kent Inn of Court and their families tackled tasks at Union Mission, the Southeast Virginia Foodbank, St. Mary’s Home for Disabled Children and the Bridge Christian Fellowship Church. Each year the effort is encouraged by Regent Law to remind students that law, in the name of Christ, is about having a servant’s heart: putting others first in a career teeming with a countering reputation.

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.
