Law School Begins Winding Down for the Class of 2010


With only a few days of classes left and an intense period of studying for finals coming up, the Columbus School of Law’s Class of 2010 took a brief breather on April 26 to look back and reflect on their law school careers.

Gathered together in the law school’s atrium, the soon-to-be-alumni lifted their glasses in the traditional Champagne Toast to themselves, to their professors and to their incredibly busy and productive time as law students.
“This is always a tough time. It’s time to say goodbye,” said Dean Veryl V. Miles. She went on to praise the graduating class for its demonstrated commitment to public service, citing its continuing volunteer work in the Gulf Coast in the wake of Hurricane Katrina; in northeast Washington, D.C.;  and for its support of many local charities and causes.  

Jennifer Pierotti (3L) also offered remarks, urging her classmates to be mindful of their well-rounded legal education at CUA when they are interviewing for jobs.
“A clear vision and strategy is priceless,” said Pierotti.
The champagne toast concluded with the announcement by Dean Miles of the May 28th commencement speaker: the Hon. Paul R. Michel, chief judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
