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. Duane was a humorous speaker, bringing laughter to the room, but he emphasized his purpose in writing and speaking about this book: “The Lord is not pleased with those who falsely accuse the innocent by ways of deceit, and I think light needs to be shed on this subject. Young and innocent people are getting falsely convicted and imprisoned more than we know, and I think it should be talked about.”

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!
