California Western congratulates the Class of 2021 and looks forwards to welcoming each of you into the legal profession or wherever you choose to use your Juris Doctor.

On behalf of the law school, we are pleased to provide each graduate with a gift valued at $210.00. The gift is in the form of a credit towards a CWSL Custom Frame, class rings or other options through our graduation vendor. We hope that providing a choice will allow you to select the gift which best fits your lifestyle and wishes. See the flyer below for details. If you have already paid for any of these materials through CB Grad, you can receive a refund for any costs you incurred up to $210.

Note that if you do not use the entire amount, it will be forfeited and is not redeemable for cash. Only CWSL Class of 2021 graduates may redeem the e-certificate. You must redeem this certificate by June 15, 2021.
