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.

Lynne Marie Kohm Awarded the 2017 Faculty Excellence in Service Award

Each quarter, Regent University’s Office of Academic Affairs honors faculty members with Faculty Excellence Awards.

On November 7, Regent Law professor Lynn Marie Kohm was awarded the 2017 Faculty Excellence Award in the area of service. According to Dr. Gerson Moreno-Riaño, executive vice president of Academic Affairs, Kohm “embodies the cheerful servant leader,” and claims that her most important service to LAW is her commitment to coordinating a student women’s discipleship group.

“[Kohm] exemplifies servant leadership,” said Moreno-Riaño. “She works tirelessly to promote her school to external audiences … in her faculty development role, she passionately encourages faculty to develop their research and scholarship.”

Congratulations to Professor Lynne Marie Kohm!
