Law Student Leads Way at Commencement

When University of Louisville graduates marched into Freedom Hall May 8 for commencement ceremonies, they followed students carrying colorful banners with each school or college name.

The banners are a handy way for family and friends to separate groups and find their graduate in the crowd. They also are a way to honor students who have been leaders in other ways: banner bearers are each school or college’s “outstanding graduate” for 2010. Each has a high record of scholarship, leadership and service.

Barry Dunn represented the Louis D. Brandeis School of Law. Dunn served as president of the Moot Court Board, a post of honor that also requires a lot of work. As president, he completed a project to review moot court competitions, evaluate them for the work required and credit hours awarded and draft a plan that equitably allocates credit hours to student competitors. The project normally would be one for a faculty curriculum committee. Dunn also served as the “notes” editor for the University of Louisville Law Review.
