About the Program Regent Law’s Honors Program provides exclusive academic and professional experiences to select entering students and those who have performed near the top of their first year law school class. Program Benefits Participants take select classes with other high-performing students and enjoy a high level of in-class intellectual engagement. Honors Program classes are smaller than classes at most law schools, which enables faculty members to engage students at an enhanced level. Honors Program participants enjoy greater curricular flexibility by having fewer required courses during the second and third year.

Program Components Honors students take selected courses in sections open only to them. In the first semester of the first year, honors students participate in a special section of Christian Foundations of Law taught by Regent Law Dean Jeffrey Brauch. Honors students enjoy a special honors section of at least one of the other firstyear common law doctrinal courses; e.g., Torts, Contracts, Property, or Civil Procedure. Honors students also take select upperlevel courses in small, honors-only sections. Honors students also enjoy special professional events. First-year Honors Program participants have been privileged to meet with prominent speakers, including Distinguished Professor of Law and Government and former United States Attorney General John Ashcroft and Distinguished Professor of Government and Leadership and retired United States Admiral Vern Clark.

“The Honors Program at Regent has been a wonderful way for me to connect with students from a wide variety of backgrounds but who have similar goals and academic ambitions. It’s an ideal way to create study groups and a learning environment that fosters the Christian academic prowess needed in the legal field today.” Rebecca Vermette, Class of 2014

The Regent Law Honors Program has given me the opportunity to study subjects in a small classroom setting that really facilitates student/professor interaction and general camaraderie throughout the class. I was privileged to study Christian Foundations of Law with an engaging and intellectually challenging group of people who have become some of my closest friends at Regent. Ethan Stowell ’14
