Many of Regent Law’s 2,500+ alumni are presently working in human rights law or are involved in agencies and organizations dedicated to rescuing the enslaved, trafficked, and oppressed. We hope you enjoy reading the following alumni profiles which represent a small portion of our many alumni literally changing the world.

Tara Powell ’09

In today’s society, any large organization, especially an international one, needs legal support to function effectively and efficiently.

As a staff attorney in the General Counsel’s Office of Campus Crusade for Christ, International (“CCCI”), Tara and other staff attorneys handle the legal aspects of ministry so that the staff on the ground can focus on the mission: building spiritual movements everywhere so that everyone knows someone who truly follows Christ.

CCCI began its legal internship program while Tara was a second-year law student at Regent. She competed with students from Pepperdine and other candidates interviewed by CCCI at the Christian Legal Society’s national conference to land the internship which eventually lead to her present job.

It turns out that Regent Law’s strong reputation went a long way towards CCCI choosing to interview Regent Law students for its new legal internship program, and toward CCCI eventually bringing Tara on staff. “I never would have imagined that this is where I would be after law school,” she says. “I didn’t even know working for CCCI would be an option,” she continues, “and if I had not gone to Regent, I probably would not be an attorney for Campus Crusade right now.”
