Law 2023: BRADLEY J. LINGO
DEAN, REGENT UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF LAW, VIRGINIA BEACH
Lingo became dean of Regent University’s law school in June, after former North Carolina Supreme Court Chief Justice Mark Martin left to become founding dean of the High Point University School of Law. Lingo has guided Regent Law toward records for enrollment, median LSAT and U.S. News & World Report rankings. In the publisher’s 2023 to 2024 Best Law Schools rankings, Regent ranked No. 125, rising 17 places from the prior year.
Before becoming dean, Lingo co-founded Regent University’s Robertson Center for Constitutional Law. He also served as the school’s associate dean for academic affairs. In 2020, Regent University presented him with the Faculty Excellence Award, and in 2022, Regent’s student bar association named him professor of the year.
Prior to joining Regent, Lingo was a partner in King & Spalding’s Trial and Global Disputes practice group, where he represented three of the Big Four accounting firms.
Lingo graduated first in his class and summa cum laude from Grove City College and earned his law degree with honors from Harvard Law School.
