Attention 3Ls - Graduation Event Survey

A survey has been created by the Student Bar Association in order to get student feedback in order to plan events for graduation week for outgoing 3Ls. The survey can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/3DMP7TV??and the Student Bar Association would appreciate any input from the 3L class.

3Ls - Vote for Hooding Professors

Every year graduating students get to select three (3) professors to assist in the hooding process at graduation.  Usually, students select professors who have been influential during their time in law school.  Now is your chance to cast your vote as to which professors should assist in our May 2014 commencement!

 

We will take votes until next Tuesday, April 8 at midnight and will release the selected hooding professors after we check their availability for the ceremony.

 

Thank you for your contribution!
