As a Christian college, spiritual life is a critical part of the Regent student experience. Students, staff, and faculty of Regent Law support one another and live out their Christian worldview with intentionality. The university encourages students to embrace and share their faith through campus spiritual life activities including chapel services, Bible study groups, and special events.
Since the university is nondenominational, no one Christian tradition predominates. Indeed, many churches and faiths are represented by members of the Regent family, including Assemblies of God, Baptist, Catholic, Episcopalian, Lutheran, and Presbyterian denominations, among others.
A defining characteristic of Regent Law is that each class is 10 minutes longer than ABA requirements stipulate in order to begin with a period of devotion. Led by either students or faculty, this time of common prayer, teaching, and worship affirms the relationship between students' professional training and Christian worldview. Often, faculty will use the devotion time to relate biblical principles to the material covered in class—exploring the connection between faith and law.
Once a week, Regent Law students, faculty, and staff come together for worship and a message that is tailored to the life of a Christian called to the study and practice of law. Each week, Law Chapel is sponsored by a different student organization that provides lunch following the service.

The university employs a full-time chaplain who fosters campus spiritual life and supports all members of the university community. Additionally, each school at the university has designated student chaplains.
