Regent University School of Law, located in Virginia Beach, Virginia, offers skills-intensive, Christian faith-based legal education that equips students to be excellent lawyers and leaders in the legal profession.

Its goal is to lay a foundation of first principles of law, the Western Legal and Common Law traditions, and American Constitutionalism. Regent Law also equips students with the contemporary knowledge base and practical skills necessary to thrive in law-related disciplines. 

The school’s religious affiliation is emphasized in the classroom through devotions and substantive integration. The faculty, educated at some of the nation’s top law schools, serve as mentors for students and provide excellent instruction. In Princeton Review’s 2020 Edition of Best Law Schools, for example, the Regent Law faculty tied for 5th best in the nation for quality of teaching and 7th best for accessibility. The faculty also focus on preparing students for the bar exam, which is evidenced by Regent’s ranking as 20th best in the nation for Ultimate Bar Passage in 2019.

Regent prepares students to be practice-ready when they graduate. Through various clinical and experiential learning opportunities, and outstanding Moot Court and Trial Advocacy Programs, Regent Law graduates are equipped with the skills they need to succeed in practice. Regent also has an excellent writing program, with a focus on preparing students for judicial clerkships. Regent is competitive with the top schools in the nation for judicial clerkships and jobs. Among the class of 2019, 24.6% obtained a judicial clerkship; and the National Association of Law Placement employment rate for this class was 95%. 

Further, preLaw Magazine has ranked Regent Law among the top law schools for human rights, trial advocacy, and innovation in practical training.

The Center for Global Justice gives students the opportunity to partner with human rights organizations across the world and provides a number of students each year with grant money to travel domestically and abroad to combat human trafficking, secure religious freedom, and protect vulnerable women and children. And through the Robertson Center for Constitutional Law, students have the opportunity to work on amicus briefs to the Supreme Court and Federal Appellate Courts in high-profile freedom of speech, separation of powers, and religious liberty cases.
