Bruce Cameron teaches Religion in the Workplace, Public Sector Labor Law and administers the Right to Work Practicum. Prior to coming to Regent, he spent over thirty years litigating religious freedom and constitutional law cases in the employment context.

He counseled employees in virtually every state as to their rights and formally represented clients in administrative or judicial proceedings in at least 25 states. As the director of the Freedom of Conscience Project of the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation, he continues to be actively involved in litigation with the assistance of Regent students.

He is the author of the weekly Bible studies on the popular web site www.GoBible.org.
