I can't find any information on this school... which is maybe telling within itself, any feedback?

I don't particulalary know anything about the school other than it is ABA approved, and supposedly very Christian. If you want to know actual facts about the school it is usually better to scope out the school yourself, and talk to lawyers in the area the school is located in.

I think it would be a wonderful school for someone that is very conservative, but you would have to fit their mold, which is why it is very important to understand a school's culture and not pay so much attention to rank, and anonymous internet posts. See how YOU fit in.

If you are of the same faith as a faith based school, then it might be nice. If not, they might not ban you but it would be weird all the same.

I wouldn't want to go to a Sharia law school I can tell you that much.

Having been to their Preview Weekend, I have a decent feel for their program. You will obviously be most comfortable there if you are an evangelical Christian with your faith being a central part of your everyday life. Each class has a ten-minute devotional teaching by the professor or someone the professor appoints. Also, you will learn Constitutional Law with a strong emphasis on the moral foundations of the law.

However, we attended an actual class, (don't remember the class name, but the topic was European common law) and you wouldn't have been able to tell that this was a "Christian" school from the topic matter...it was simply European common law being taught: no slants, innuendos, or hidden agendas. The professor was a very good teacher and I found I was able to understand the subject even though the class was in mid-semester form.

I spoke to a 3L that was originally put off by the devotionals but got used to them, and didn't really have any issues with the Christian foundations of the school, she said they were basically just learning the same law that every other school was teaching. And there are students there who aren't of the same faith mind-set as the school's general population, so it's not like you HAVE to be "one of them."

It's good that they don't discriminate against other faiths, but why would you WANT to go to a school whose faith differed from your own (with so many other options out there to pick from) ?

I hear it has education style learning in a school type environment.

I've heard some good things about Regent Law from a former student, but they have a pretty strong religious side to them and appreciated the atmosphere. As far as the actual academic side of things, it seemed pretty comparable in course work.
