|Jason Rodriguez, Class of 2016|
"Regent Law's outstanding courses and Moot Court Program enabled me to immediately and seamlessly transfer from student to criminal appellate practitioner. Immediately after passing the bar in 2016, I was hired as an Assistant Attorney General in Florida in the Criminal Appeals Division. Since then, I have briefed over 100 cases before the First District Court of Appeal, participated in two successful oral arguments, and provided supplemental research on a brief opposing certiorari in the United States Supreme Court. I have frequently received compliments from both colleagues and opposing counsel on the quality of my briefs and the fact that I am able to perform at such a high level with less than a year of experience outside of law school. My success is directly attributable the skills I learned in Regent's rigorous writing courses, like Advanced Legal Analysis Research and Writing and Appellate Advocacy, along with the practical feedback I received while competing for Regent's Moot Court Program. Regent's focus on practical skills, robust internship programs, and continual commitment to providing an exceptional legal education, fully equipped me to engage attorneys with vastly more experience than I and represent the State of Florida as an Assistant Attorney General."
