Regent Law Faculty Achievements - Week of February 15, 2016

Regent University's School of Law Faculty members willingly share their knowledge and expertise beyond the classroom to spark scholarly debate and advance the practice of law. Their latest endeavors include the following.

Regent Law Library Director Margaret Christensen and Assistant Director Marie Hamm have been selected for possible inclusion in An Oral History of Law Librarianship, part of the Spinelli’s Reference Shelf library on HeinOnline. Patrick Kehoe, former president of the American Association of Law Libraries will be on campus next Wednesday to conduct their video interviews for this honor.  Decisions on which videos to include in the library, and when they will appear are in the hands of a Hein editorial board, but interviews are available to anyone with HeinOnline library access, which includes almost all U.S. and Canadian law school communities, and a lesser number of law firm, county and courthouse law library users, providing great exposure to Regent University School of Law Library.

Marie Hamm
, assistant director of the Regent Law Library, will also be a guest speaker at Cornell University in April, and will present “Less is the New More.”

Professor Eric DeGroff will be presenting on April 9 at the Legal Educators’ Colloquium, “Help!  I’ve Been Asked to Teach my ADR Course Online!”  The Colloquium is part of the ABA Section of the Dispute Resolution Annual Spring Conference. Other panelists will include colleagues from Michigan State, Hamline & Creighton.

Associate Professor Bradley Jacob will be speaking on Tuesday, March 8 at the University of Nebraska Law School on "Hobby Lobby Revisited: Obamacare v. The Little Sisters of the Poor."  Then, on Wednesday, March 9, he will present "The Senate's Duty to Advise and Consent . . . Or Not" at the University of Missouri-Columbia Law School.

Professor Craig Stern will be speaking at the New England School of Law in Boston Federalist Society event on February 19. He will present “Christian Views on Moral Luck,” largely based on his article, "Crime, Moral Luck, and the Sermon on the Mount."

Professor James Duane
will be speaking at Stanford Law in April.

Associate Dean Ben Madison and Professor Natt Gantt, and their work on identify formation and the Center for Ethical Formation and Legal Education Reform (CEFLER) were featured on the Law Professors Blog in a post authored by Hofstra law professor Scott Fruehwald, a leader in the field of identity formation and author of a book on professional identity formation in law.
Professor Jeff Brauch led a retreat for law students and lawyers this past weekend hosted by the Christian Legal Society (and Mike Schutt) for their CLS Northeast Retreat held in upstate NY.  Jeff spoke on “Following God in a Pluralistic World” to about 30 students (most from NYU) and approximately 10 lawyers.

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.
