Pat Robertson's Law School Under Fire

79 Views
"Regent Law School seeks to admit students who are serious about the critical roles they will assume as future counselors, conciliators, defenders of the faith, effective client advocates and followers of Christ," the school's website states.

However, many people feel that the school is not up to par academically and are angered at the favor that the Bush administration has seemingly shown to its graduates.



"It used to be that high-level DOJ [Department of Justice] jobs were generally reserved for the best of the legal profession," wrote a contributor to The New Republic website. "That a recent graduate of one of the very worst (and sketchiest) law schools with virtually no relevant experience could ascend to this position is a sure sign that there is something seriously wrong at the DOJ."

Regent University School of Law was created when Oral Roberts University gave up on its law school and gave Regent University its entire law library. At first, it was referred to as CBN University School of Law after the Christian Broadcasting Network. Later, the name was changed, and the school was accredited by the American Bar Association in 1996.

Regent graduates currently make up a large part of the Bush administration staff, and this is mostly due to the fact that Kay Coles James, Dean of Regent's government school, was chosen by the administration to serve as Director of the Office of Personnel Management. However, since Regent is currently tied for 136th place in the fourth tier of the US News & World Report ranking, it's no wonder the graduates have come under scrutiny for landing prime positions within the administration.

However, while the school has had less than stellar academic performance in the past, it has undergone some changes in recent years. According to the school administration, it now has a 71 percent bar exam passage rate and it has proven victorious over top-ranked schools in both moot court and negotiation competitions, and its graduates are working hard to prove that they have a place in the White House.
