Regent Law Students Meet with U.S. Senator Thom Tillis
VIRGINIA BEACH, VA (January 13, 2022) – This week, students from Regent University School of Law participated in special events in Washington, D.C., including a personal meeting with U.S. Senator Thom Tillis.
“We’re so grateful for leaders, like Senator Tillis, who are willing to share their experiences and wisdom with Regent Law students,” said Mark Martin, dean of Regent Law. “This meeting was a valuable opportunity for our students to prepare for the practical challenges—and the opportunities—that lie beyond graduation.”
Senator Tillis and other distinguished guests engaged with Regent Law students to discuss the practical challenges posed by public service. Students also had an opportunity to interact with experienced lawyers with various professional backgrounds and specialties.
Senator Tillis was elected to the North Carolina House of Representatives in 2006 and was selected by his peers to serve as Speaker of the House from 2011 to 2014. As Speaker, he played an instrumental role in enacting job-creating policies and reforming North Carolina’s tax and regulatory codes. He was elected as U.S. Senator in 2014 and he has focused on pragmatic solutions and delivering results for North Carolina.
