Students Say

Regent University provides future JDs with an “exceptional academic experience.” We should mention that the school is religious and students highlight that they are taught “how to integrate [their] Christian worldview with [their] practice; [you learn]...how to approach difficult, controversial, or just plain common issues from a Biblical perspective and how to deal with them in ways that benefit you, your clients, and the community as a whole.” Beyond a Christ-centered education, we’re told that Regent’s “research and writing courses...are amazing.” And while they are “very intense,” they do “result in great writers” and students “ready for real world situations.” Even better, “there are many opportunities [to earn] credits through practical skills.”

Of course, one of Regent’s greatest strengths is its “amazing” faculty. Students love that their professors “have a wealth of legal experience to bring to the discussion.” Indeed, many had “amazing careers in their...specialties prior to becoming professors, and they all publish regularly in their respective fields.” They also seem to “genuinely care about their students.” As one person interjects, “They have been nothing short of supportive from 1L year all the way through bar prep.” A fellow classmate agrees sharing, “I could go to any one of them (whether I've had them as a professor or not) to ask for advice or assistance and he/she would be willing to help.” Simply put, the faculty here is “kind and gracious.”

Additionally, a number of people speak highly of Regent’s research librarians who “are abundantly helpful and patient with even the most complex research questions/assistance needs.” Aside from great librarians, students also have “access to a variety of research databases, including Lexis and Westlaw, and representatives of these companies are frequently invited to assist the students on proper legal research.” As if that wasn’t enough, students report that the law library itself is an “exceptional...study space.”

Lastly, employment opportunities are definitely plentiful for Regent grads. There’s no doubt that this is partially thanks to a “timely and attentive” career services department that “will assist student[s] with interview prep, resume and cover letter writing, and job/internship searches.” Plus, students can easily capitalize on the numerous “clerkships, apprenticeships, and externships that can be obtained for credit or just for experience, both in the area and through connections [around the] country.” We’re guessing it also doesn’t hurt that Regent’s “bar passage rate is the best in Virginia.”

Campus Life

Students Say

Many law students are drawn to Regent University for its “strong sense of community.” This helps to ensure that “cooperation,” not cut-throat behavior, is the norm. As one student explains, “Everybody knows each other, and even if we don’t all hang out, we are fond of each other and think of ourselves as a big team.” A number of impressed first-years also remark that “upperclass students are [always] available and willing to offer advice.” Of course, no matter what year they are, students find their classmates to be “genuine and caring.” They truly want to see each other “succeed.” Hence it’s quite common for students to “help each other, share notes, etc.”

Nevertheless, a few individuals do complain that there is a “sharp distinction between honors and non-honors [students]” and point to the fact that the school provides honors students with “unfair special treatment.” Thankfully, it’s rather easy for everyone to get involved with campus life regardless of their standing. Indeed, “there are a large number of...organizations and skills boards” available.” And, best of all, virtually every student graduates with “great connections and relationships” that are sure to last a lifetime.
