Friday was graduation day here at the Law School, so please join us in wishing heartfelt congratulations to the Class of 2008 and to their families. As is tradition, along with the University's graduation ceremony, the Law School hosted a hooding ceremony in Rockefeller Chapel. During this ceremony, graduates receive the distinctive purple hood that is worn during formal academic events by those who hold degrees in law.
This year's faculty speaker at the hooding ceremony was Randy Picker, Paul H. and Theo Leffmann Professor of Commercial Law, and a frequent contributor to this blog. You can listen to Randy's address here; he was introduced by Dean Saul Levmore.
Update: A transcript of Professor Picker's speech is also available.
