On May 10, family and friends gathered with graduates to celebrate of the achievements of the Class of 2013. The Honors and Awards Ceremony is the first in the commencement celebrations each year and recognizes outstanding academic achievement and significant contributions to the Law School community through awards generously sponsored by faculty, alumni and donors.
Faculty shared memories of the distinguished current and former faculty, judges, alumni and members of the law school community for which the awards are named as well as words of praise for the students who received the awards. Students also had the opportunity to bestow awards on the faculty and presented "woodies" to faculty, staff and Interim Dean Barbara Bergman for excellence in teaching and their commitment to students and their success.
Newly established awards this year were the Felix Briones Award in Ethical Integrity in Business Law and the Peter M. Romero Creative Spirit Award. Please visit here for a complete listing of awards.
