CUNY Law students received their Juris Doctorate on May 14, 2010 in a graduation ceremony celebrating their successful path through law school. "We are so proud of the 2010 class," said CUNY Law Dean Michelle J. Anderson. "Our students are passionate advocates who will carry on the important tradition of public interest law among CUNY grads."
CUNY Law is recognized as a national leader in public interest law, training lawyers to serve the underprivileged and disempowered and to make a difference in their communities. The Law School's clinical program, which requires all third-year students to provide direct, supervised client representation to low-income individuals, is consistently ranked among the top ten out of law schools nationwide.
Graduation was held at the Kupferberg Center for the Arts, Colden Auditorium, Queens College in Flushing, Queens.
