Success Stories

“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

“I would put Regent up against the finest law schools. Regent provided me with a top-notch legal education. Quality academic instruction is required of any law school, but Regent went a step further by providing faculty and staff who genuinely cared for and supported the students.”

Teresa Hammons, J.D., 1988

“Your generosity has lightened my financial burden and inspired me to love my neighbor by giving back to those with lesser means. I hope I will one day be in a position to extend God’s love to students like you have extended God’s love to me. ”

Fredric Ericsson, J.D., 2021 Scholarship Recipient

“I learned all I could at Regent, because I knew He would eventually draw it all back out of me to use for someone else’s good.”

Sharla Mylar, Juris Doctor (J.D.), 2017 Assistant Attorney General, Alaska Department of Law

“Regent has an outstanding record of preparing students for incredible success.”

Timothy J. Downing, Juris Doctor (J.D.), 2010 U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Oklahoma
