Regent Law

lawyerintraining:
I hear that Regent views and teaches law from a christian perspective. Is this true? I ask since all of my prelaw classes have been teaching me things from a secular perspective and it would be interestign and refreshing to learn how Christian lawyers view the law and constitutionality of things like abortion, gay marriage, right to die, etc.

Do they teach the same stuff with a cross in the hall, or is it unique? If so how? Is it worth attending?

fortook:
It is true.  If you apply to Regent you'll need a recommendation from your clergy.  I'm not being sarcastic, really- your reverend must sign off.

I know they have taken some heat for mixing religion and law the way they do.  There are other religious school, like St. Marys and such, but they don't mix religion into the curriculum like Regent does.  Bush took heat for hiring many Regent grads because they basically have to be a fundamental christian and, of course republican.

Their perspective on abortion, gay marriage and right to die:  Bad, unholy bad, and bad- respectively.

justanothersucker:
what is their opinion on those and how are said opinions unholy?
I'm assumming they are against abortion. Would it be more holy to kill babies? Can you find the verse that is for it?

Dude.  Yet again I have to ask: wtf are  you talking about?  Abortion?  Verse? Kill babies?  I wasn't giving my opinion on those issues or saying what I think is right or wrong.

You asked about Regent, that's what I've heard. Very stereotypically fundamental Christian.  If you want to know what I think, then yeah its bad to polarize issues so absolutely in a profession like the law- a profession based on compromise, logic and argument. 

As to the issues themselves, whether I agree or disagree- totally immaterial.  I see people all the time who I may agree with on an issue, I may also think they are unethical by doing things like, say making all attendees sign a waiver of loyalty at a town hall. I don't want to deal with this creepy law of the excluded middle crap.  If you want me to quantify that I can, but why?

justanothersucker:
This was your sentence "Their perspective on abortion, gay marriage and right to die:  Bad, unholy bad, and bad- respectively."

There you go winner.
