Regent University Ranked in 2015 Legal Publication

In its spring 2015 edition, The National Jurist, a publication for aspiring law students, listed Regent University School of Law among schools such as Duke University, Wake Forrest University and Syracuse University as having highly effective practical training in the legal fields.

The National Jurist also listed Regent as among 33 schools in the nation for its stellar bar exam preparation, listing its 80.91 percent bar pass rate among its competitors such as the University of Virginia, Penn State Law, and Baylor University.

"These objective measures validate the excellence of our curriculum, faculty and students. A school cannot excel without excellent students, and we are blessed with a quality student body. Our curriculum does an exceptional job of preparing our students both substantively and practically to excel in the practice of law," said Michael Hernandez, dean of Regent's School of Law.

Programs within the school, such as the university's moot court competition teams and the Center for Human Rights, Global Justice, and the Rule of Law, along with proximity and access to the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), contribute to Regent's consistent ability to provide students with ample courtroom and writing experience before they are launched into the legal field.

This year's Moot Court program finished 8th in the nation. Students who attend law school at Regent are assured that they are receiving the best education in and out of the classroom, a fact that Hernandez does not take for granted.

"Our faculty has stellar credentials and has been ranked for two consecutive years in the top 10 in Princeton Review surveys of American law students. I am blessed to lead a team of such exceptional people, supported by excellent programs," said Hernandez.

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.
