The Mattatuck Drum Band led the 2020 and 2021 classes in the procession. Class members of 2020 and 2021 lined up at Beinecke Plaza for the procession to Yale`s historic Old Campus. In her remarks on the 2020 and 2021 courses, Dean Heather K. Gerken explained that lawyers love to share stories about their experiences at law school. But because of the pandemic, Gerken said, “your stories are different from those of all the classes before you.” Despite the challenges the pandemic brings to the classes of 2020 and 2021, Gerken reiterated the graduates` personal and professional resilience and determination. “Your stories are about mutual support in a way that no other law school class has ever had to do,” Gerken said. “They have shown that this community endures, regardless of distance or difficulty. These examples continue today as your class is already doing remarkable things in the world and facing challenges with courage and determination.

Kristy Ferraro, left, LEAP students Diego Ellis Soto won an award for their work on how wildlife shapes and connects ecosystems through their movements. Friendship, Bell said, should be high and prioritized, though it`s often a sacrifice in favor of other relationships and professional life. “But a life without friendship and the love it cultivates is dark,” Bell said, before citing writer Bell Hooks` work on how friendship fits into a broader commitment to love. Four hundred and sixty-two graduates were honored at Saturday`s ceremony. The two classes include 420 J.D., 2 M.S.L., 28 LL.M., 12 J.S.D. degree recipients.

After the university ceremony, law school graduates attended the law school graduation ceremony at Yale`s Lanman Center. “Let me tell you, the work you`ve done here — elevating each other while getting injunctions, producing groundbreaking science, and becoming leaders in all sorts of fields — is just amazing,” she said. “If you didn`t already believe that you could achieve absolutely anything, let there be no doubt now.” Dwayne Betts `16, the guest speaker at the time, referenced Ralph Ellison`s Invisible Man and spoke to the graduates about the importance of being seen and seeing others big and small. “There`s a sense of not being seen that I think we share,” said Betts, founding director of Freedom Reads, which sets up libraries in prisons to bring literature to incarcerated people. “If we tell each other something about what we see, maybe we`re all less invisible.” A reception in the courtyard for graduates and their families after the ceremony.

As in previous years, the Lanman Center was renovated for the occasion and hundreds of seats were occupied by friends and family of the graduates. Graduates in academic robes walked across a blue-and-white draped stage, a brass quintet played a procession, and graduates and guests toasted as they gathered in the courtyard for the Law School`s traditional reception after the ceremony. 17 septembreYuhua WangUniversité Harvard, Département du gouvernement”Réseau de parenté d`élite et renforcement de l`État: théorie et preuves de la Chine impériale”October 1James ParkUCLA School of LawJoint avec le Bert W.

The alumni ceremony was the culmination of a jubilee day that was postponed for two years for some students as the pandemic disrupted traditional in-person celebrations at first. “I want to convey the transformative power of friendship that allows us to overcome our own limitations and survive life`s challenges to encourage us to be worthy people while practicing law,” she said. “While we haven`t learned anything else in the last couple of years, we know that much of what we think is sustainable can disappear at any time. But what we will always have – and we will be proud of – is the time and energy we will devote to building loving relationships of many species with the people around us,” she said.
