Success Stories

“Regent Law gave me a high-quality education delivered by passionate professors who brilliantly integrated biblical principles into rigorous curriculum. The collegiality of professors and peers also stands out. I can't imagine you get that blend at any other ABA-approved school.”

Bradley Knox, J.D., 1994 Life & Health Insurance Vice President & Counsel, Federal Relations, Aflac, Inc., Washington, D.C.

“I was incredibly blessed to learn from committed men and women who were so knowledgeable about their field. They were also just as passionate and committed to their faith and investing in their students.”

Rebekah Woods, Doctor of Organizational Leadership, J.D., 2004, 1994

“Regent definitely prepared me every step of the way, from a summer internship and moot court competitions to working with Singer Legal Group and securing a clerkship. I wouldn’t have had those same opportunities anywhere else.”

Kevin Hoffman, J.D., 2014

“Without funding for a law degree, I was ready to give up on my dream. Then, Regent contacted me about their honors program and a full-ride scholarship. I said, 'All right, God; I guess this is your answer. I’m going.'”

Joe Addink, Juris Doctor (J.D.), 2019 Associate District Attorney, Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office

“There were plenty of other law schools. But I told my family, ‘If I don’t go to Regent, I’m not going to law school at all.’”
