Abstract.In this paper we shall consider some properties of regular modules. We show that every submodule of a divisible regular module over an integral domain is divisible and we also show that $J(R)M=0$ for every regular $R$-module $M$. It is shown that if every simple $R$-module is regular then $%
J(R)=\cap \text{\rm ann}\,(M)$, where the intersection is over all regular $R$-module. If $%
J(R) \neq 0$ and $M$ is a finitely generated regular $R$-module, then every prime submodule of $M$ is maximal. In this paper, $R$ will be a commutative ring with identity and all modules are unitary.
