December Graduates

BYU Law invited fall graduates to a luncheon on December 3rd to congratulate the 23 students on their achievements. Graduates had the opportunity to mingle with BYU Law faculty and share their post-graduate plans. Following the lunch, Madelyn Blanchard and Tara Fitzgerald played a musical number, and Dean Rasband shared a few words.

“You are going to embark on a life where you have a lot of power in your community, the church, and in the state,” he said. “People will turn to you. With that power comes great responsibility. I hope you will be up to that task with the power that comes from your law degree.” Dean Rasband ended by saying, “There are people who really need your help… you have the capacity to help them. What people want is someone who will take their problem and say, ‘I will make it better;’ if you do that you will be successful.”
