Regent Law has both a full- and part-time JD program, with standard core requirements occupying the first half of both curricula. In order to ensure that all of its students are up to the task, the school operates a two-week orientation for select students to orient them to the rigors of the school's academics. Upper-level students can follow four informal tracks, including one in public law and another that prepares them for practicing in Virginia. In addition, there are six dual degree programs, such as a JD/MDiv and JD/MA in counseling.
Regent Law is committed to providing a high quality of life for students and maintains well-kept facilities. In addition, there is no strong undergraduate presence at Regent University, which means that the social scene is relatively quiet, revolving around student organizations and school-sponsored events. Due in part to the proximity to Washington, D.C., and the school's emphasis on public sector service, around a fourth of every graduating class take up government jobs, with the others concentrated in smaller firms in the region. Graduates also excel in the courtroom because of the school's trial advocacy program--the trial advocacy team took first place in the 2007 ABA National Negotiation Competition.
