Yale Law School honored 251 degree candidates at the School’s commencement ceremony on May 21, 2012. Speakers included Dean Robert Post, who offered special congratulations to the first class to enter Yale Law School under his Deanship.
Harvey Karp Visiting Lecturer in Law Stephen Bright delivered a powerful commencement address, urging graduates to use their gifts to make the legal world a better world – one where no one is shut out and the weak and vulnerable are not exploited. The students also heard from Margaret H. Marshall ’76, former Chief Justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court who had received an honorary Doctor of Laws degree from Yale University earlier in the day.
