Board of Directors
Jeffrey A. Brauch
Jeff Brauch has served as a professor at Regent University School of Law since 1994. From 2000 to 2015 he served as the law school’s dean.
Brauch received his B.A. with distinction from the University of Wisconsin in 1985. He received his J.D. with honors from the University of Chicago Law School in 1988. After graduating from law school, Brauch was a law clerk for Justice William Callow of the Wisconsin Supreme Court during the 1988-89 term. He then worked five years as an associate with the Milwaukee law firm Quarles & Brady, where he specialized in commercial litigation.
At Regent, Brauch has taught Foundations of Law, International Human Rights, International Criminal Law, Torts, and other courses. He helped create the law school’s Center for Global Justice, Human Rights, and the Rule of Law, and serves as the Center’s executive director. Brauch has published three books, Flawed Perfection: What It Means to Be Human and Why It Matters for Culture, Politics, and Law (2017), A Higher Law (2008), and an earlier edition, Is Higher Law Common Law (1999). He has also published twenty-seven articles on topics related to international human rights, integration of faith and law, and ERISA litigation.
Brauch loves history, the music of Beethoven, and the Green Bay Packers – not necessarily in that order! He and his wife Becky are the parents of four adult children.
