Regent University Law Review seeks to present academically excellent scholarship on relevant issues facing the legal community today from the perspective of a historic Christian worldview. It is committed to a jurisprudence based upon a Higher Law – that is, law based upon the Law of God – yet it remains open to publishing opposing viewpoints in certain contexts. It is the goal of the Law Review to provide a forum for scholarship that applies this perspective to our current legal system and that edifies the practicing bar.

Established in 1991, the Law Review is published by Regent University’s School of Law. Since then, student editors and staff members, chosen on the basis of academic achievement and writing ability, have gained valuable experience by writing and editing the Law Review under the guidance of the law school faculty.

Past contributors include United States Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, Attorney General John D. Ashcroft, Judge Edith H. Jones, Attorney General Edwin Meese III, Robert P. George, George Allen, Charles W. Colson, Charles E. Rice, Phillip E. Johnson, David Barton, Nancy R. Pearcey, Professor Lyman Johnson, and James Bopp.

Soli Deo Gloria.
