Regent Law Faculty Achievements - Week of April 25

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.

Professor Eric DeGroff attended and presented at the Representation in Mediation Competition Conference, spending the first two days of his time at the conference in New York last week helping to run this competition.  He was also appointed to serve as the lead co-chair for this ABA committee throughout the next year.  On the final day of the conference, Proffesor DeGroff presented on a panel for a CLE program at the Legal Educators’ Colloquium.  To learn more about his research in this area, see his most downloaded article: Training Tomorrow's Lawyers: What Empirical Research Can Tell Us About the Effect of Law School Pedagogy on Law Student Learning Styles.

Professor Tom Folsom presented and participated in a debate at Faulkner Law School, on April 14, on the topic “Designing New Law for a Coded World—Whether, When, and How (Easterbrook’s ‘Law of the Horse’ 20 years after).”  View some of his work here.

Professor James Duane’s book “You have the Right to Remain Innocent” is #1 again on Amazon.  Professor Duane also presented this week at Stanford Law’s Symposium entitled “Cutting Edge Issues in Criminal Justice,” where he had his own panel.

The paper,  Empowering Love and Respect for Child Offenders through Therapeutic Jurisprudence: The Teen Courts Example that Alison Haefner and Associate Dean Lynn Marie Kohm have published in an online international journal at Sociology and Anthropology 4(4): 212-221 (2016), was featured on Law Professors TypePad’s CrimProfBlog.

Center for Global Justice Administrative Director Ernie Walton is attending a conference called Faith and Law Around the Globe (FLAG) sponsored by CRU (Campus Crusade for Christ) in South Africa, which will run April 20-27.  See him on Twitter with other attorneys at the conference.
