Last night was the Graduating Students Dinner for the Class of 2007 - the first of many events to end another academic year. The Dinner was held in the Green Lounge at the Law School with many of the members of the Class of 2007 present as well as faculty and staff. During the dinner there were a number of awards given. The Class Award goes to a faculty or staff member who has made a significant contribution to the Law School community and this year it went to Professor Douglas Baird. The Class of 2007 presented the Teaching Award to Professor Adam Samaha. This was particularly special because when the Class of 2007 started it was also Professor Samaha's first year at the Law School. Also, the faculty members voted to be faculty hooders were Douglas Baird, Emily Buss, Lior Strahilevitz and David Strauss. These faculty members will be "hooding" each graduate with their academic hoods. After dinner everyone went to the auditorium to watch a slide show put together by the student graduation committee which I think had a picture of every member of the class! The Dinner is a nice way to end the year and to kick off the graduation festivities. The Convocation and Hooding Ceremony are on Friday, June 8. We are sad to see the Class of 2007 leave and we will miss them but we wish them the best of luck!
