Each class that comes through the law school has a unique personality. This class will be remembered as a very friendly, out-going and community-minded class. The Class of 2015 made significant strides in social justice with the creation of a new student organization, Advocates and Allies, and it had a very active Potter Law Club with determination to give back to the community. It has also been extremely proactive in expanding the externship program at the College of Law, leaving behind a trail of new opportunities for upcoming classes.
The College of Law is exceptionally proud of the Class of 2015 and is excited to see the graduates put their unique talents to use in the legal community. The law school wishes the best of luck to all our graduates!
