June 6, faculty, staff, Law Review, and SBA members attended a reception recognizing the spring 2018 class. California Western’s Academic Success Reception honored top performing students in recognition of their excellent academic performance in the first trimester of law school.
The reception enables students to celebrate their success with their peers while also learning strategies for continued academic achievement as well as future opportunities during their time at the law school.
Delivering opening remarks, Dean Niels Schaumann congratulated the students on completing one of the most difficult parts of law school. “Tonight is one of many significant milestones that you will cross on your journey, and we are here to celebrate you and your success,” said the dean. “With the help of classmates, faculty, staff and with your hard work and commitment you have succeeded in this first endeavor. Thank you. You are an integral part of what makes California Western such a special place.”
Vice Dean Don Smythe also congratulated the students and introduced them to some of the opportunities they will be able to choose from in the upper division.
Congratulations to all the students at the Academic Success Reception.
