Congratulations to the May 2020 graduates of the William S. Boyd School of Law!

We know you have long anticipated May 15, 2020 as the day we all would gather to celebrate your collective success, the day you would embrace one another and proclaim, "we did it!", and the day friends and family would clap and scream wildly as your name is called and you walk across that stage.  

A global crisis has forced that day to be delayed...but it will not be denied. The Boyd community will give you your day as soon as safety and health guidelines permit. And what a fabulous day that will be!

Until then, we would like to mark what was to be your day with the video messages and tributes that you find here. Give them a watch, reflect on the effort and energy you have invested in law school the past 3-4 years, and keep an eye out for an email from Drewmel Darby with a special congratulatory gift!

    Community service is one of the pillars on which the law school was established, and we couldn’t fulfill our mission without the dedication of students and community partners like Barbara Buckley. Congratulations to this year’s “Barbara Buckley Community Service Award” recipient Kami Orton.
