School of Law Graduates Post Strong Employment Rates

In a competitive legal job market, Regent University School of Law students are successfully making their way into the profession. From the 2013 graduating class, 83 percent reported in an annual survey that they are employed, including eight graduates who are serving in prestigious judicial clerkships.

From the moment students set foot on campus in their first year, Regent Law professors stress more than just understanding the ins-and-outs of a legal education. With programs such as Regent's Integrated Lawyer Training (ILT) as well as the Center for Global Justice, Human Rights, and the Rule of Law, students have opportunities for hands-on training in legal skills, ethics, and professionalism throughout their three years of study.

Jeffrey Brauch, dean of the School of Law, explained that he is not surprised by the success of recent graduates and is very grateful that their legal training is being utilized in positions both nationally and internationally.

"From day one in their careers, our students are ready to serve with excellence and integrity and are ready to make a difference in the lives of their clients and their communities," said Brauch. "It's a joy to see them begin their careers in such influential roles."

Darius Davenport, director of career and alumni services for the School of Law, explained that the strength behind the numbers reaches further than just a positive review of job reports. Davenport said the percentages of graduates landing jobs that require a bar admission in tandem with their law degrees increased by 23 percent.

"These numbers are a testament to the fact that our students are trained well and are performing well," said Davenport. "They are doing so not only in the court room but also in the interview room."

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann Speaks at Regent Law Chapel

Raising nearly 30 children has provided Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann with negotiating skills that serve her well in the nation's capital. Bachmann, a passionate advocate for foster care and adoption, visited Regent University on November 20 as part of the university's recognition of National Adoption Awareness Month.

Bachmann and her husband, Dr. Marcus Bachmann, are the parents of five biological children and 23 foster children. She shared their story as parents and also their connection to Regent during a special law chapel for students, faculty and staff.

"It's been a marvelous experience for us. Being foster parents has allowed us to teach our biological kids that they're not the only kids in the world," Bachmann said.
