Library Spotlights Faculty Scholarship

One of Regent University’s distinctive characteristics is the camaraderie that occurs among faculty, staff, and students in pursuit of scholarship and Christian community. On May 17, the University Library hosted their second biannual spotlight on faculty scholarship in the Library Gallery.

Among these honored authors was Professor James Duane from the School of Law. Duane had the opportunity to share some highlights and stories from his book, You Have the Right to Remain Innocent, which was written and published following his classroom lecture, “Do Not Talk to the Police,” that went viral on YouTube, and now has over 2 million views.

Regent Faculty and Alumni Participate in Virginia Beach’s National Day of Prayer Observance

Prayer is a vital part of the Regent University community, and on Thursday, May 4, several Regent professors and alumni participated in a National Day of Prayer observance at City Hall in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
Distinguished Professor and Associate Dean of the School of Law (LAW) Patricia L. West was the coordinator for this annual event.

In May 2017, The International Jurist released its latest issue featuring the best LL.M. programs. Regent University’s School of Law (LAW) received an “A+” ranking in its “Best Value Law Schools” category.

The issue honors “the most robust programs for foreign attorneys” in the areas of Academics, Best Law School, Experience, Career Opportunities and Best Value. Regent’s LL.M. programs were ranked above law schools such as UNC School of Law, Wake Forest University, Georgia State University and Ohio State University.

“I’m very proud of the Regent faculty, because they worked very hard to achieve that goal,” said director of LL.M. programs and LAW associate professor Kathleen McKee. “It’s nice to be able to say to them, ‘I know you worked hard, but here are the fruits of your labor.’”

The LL.M. programs – which include both American Legal Studies and Human Rights – are designed for students who have already received JDs and wish to pursue more concentrated areas of study.
