In his remarks, Dean Fitts suggested students take a moment before diving into the heady world of legal practice to appreciate their achievements. “During the past three years, you have faced many challenges and anxieties. Through it all you’ve handled yourselves with calm resolve and dedication,” he said. “You’ve engaged in more public service activities than any other law school class in the country. You’ve published exceptional scholarly journals at the very top of the profession, and you’ve engaged in making your law school a better place by ensuring we continue to be an open and diverse community.

“In short, and you’ll hear it now for the last time — You own this school.”
