On May 8, 2020, at 11 a.m., the College of Law Class of 2020—along with faculty, staff, alumni, and guests—would have donned caps and gowns to share the joy and tradition of Commencement Exercises in front of family and friends.
However, the COVID-19 crisis meant that the College of Law community was not able to gather together on that spring morning. But we were together in spirit, both on the evening on May 7 for an awards ceremony and on May 8 with a special video send-off for the J.D. and LL.M. graduates.
“I am very proud of all you have accomplished in our three years together, and I know much more lies ahead,” said Dean Craig M. Boise. “I am not alone, as evidenced by the many special messages to the Class of 2020 from teachers, mentors, friends, and supporters. While our celebration of the class was ‘virtual,’ our pride is palpable.”
