Been seeing a lot of adverts for @RegentU of late.

Back in 2004-2011, I directed Regent Law School's Capitol Hill semester program, taught a three hour course on advanced constitutional law, taught an hour course on legal practice, and supervised writing and advocacy experiences
that satisfied the Law School's upper level requirements in both areas.

.. his well-meaning efforts to act as an intermediary and popularizer with regard to the original work of the #Norwegian mathematician Sophus Lie (1842-1899) caused him an usual embarassment: Lie bitterly accused Engel not of #plagiarism but of having acted as a #spy who had ..
