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!
