Regent University

Your article on Regent University (Scandal puts spotlight on Christian law school, Boston Globe, April 8, 2007) had a nasty whiff of credentialism about it.

To attack the competence of Monica Goodling because she graduated from a law school class from which only 40% passed the bar examinations at their first attempt is to taint her with guilt by association. Even in such a class, a handful of excellent lawyers could emerge.

If you want to attack her competence, you must do so through a careful evaluation of her actions and decisions, not because her law school colleagues were less than mediocre.
