Professor Serves on State Advisory Committee to U.S. Commission on Civil Rights

For 40 years, Bruce Cameron, professor in Regent University's School of Law, has dedicated his career to bettering the lives of employees with the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation.

Now, as a result of his years of dedicated passion to litigating Foundation-funded cases representing employees whose religious or political beliefs have been compromised due to compulsory unionism, Cameron has been appointed as a member of the Virginia State Advisory Committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights.

"The goal of my life is to advance the Kingdom of God," said Cameron. "The employees I help are extremely grateful to be able to keep both their faith and their jobs. Regent Law students are able to work with me in helping these employees. Being a blessing to employees and students in a way that advances the work of God is extremely gratifying – it is a privilege to do this work."

Cameron will carry over this passion to serve both his clients and his students during a five-year term with the committee, advising the Federal government on civil rights issues in the commonwealth of Virginia.

He hopes to translate this "real-world" experience to his classroom of Regent Law students, helping them develop the tools they need for such litigations from a unique vantage point: the inside.

"Litigating cutting-edge constitutional, civil rights and labor law cases, and serving on the Virginia Civil Rights Commission, allow me to shape the law I teach to my students and to share with them the inside knowledge that will allow them to become superior lawyers," said Cameron.

"And if the Federal government values my opinion on civil rights, hopefully the law students in my Employment Discrimination will value the class."

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!
