A new Constitutional law center named for Pat Robertson has opened at Regent University School of Law, with the stated goal of promoting freedom of speech, separation of governmental powers, and religious freedom.
The Robertson Center for Constitutional Law has already filed briefs in cases pending before the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and the United States Supreme Court, according to CBN News.
“Regent University School of Law was established to train leaders to defend our Constitution and the principles upon which our nation was founded,” said Regent’s founder, chancellor & CEO, Dr. M. G. “Pat” Robertson. “The creation of this center is one more step toward fulfilling that mission.”
Robertson expressed his gratitude to Regent’s leadership for “the wonderful honor” of having the center dedicated in his name.
The leader of the Robertson Center for Constitutional Law will be Mark Martin, former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of North Carolina and dean of the Regent University School of Law, which is located in Virginia Beach, Va.
Former judge and U.S. Solicitor General Kenneth Starr and Chief Counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice Jay Sekulow, who just helped to defend President Donald Trump against Congressional Democrats’ attempts to impeach him on specious grounds, will serve as honorary co-chairs of the center.
The Robertson Center will defend constitutional principles in court, publish white papers and scholarly articles, host distinguished judges and attorneys, advise foreign governments, support like-minded organizations, and train the next generation of advocates to defend first principles in constitutional law.
