On June 11th, the Law, Societies, and Justice program held its annual Convocation for the 2015 graduates. The celebration included a graduation ceremony where many LSJ graduates were invited to speak about their accomplishments and memories in the LSJ program. The reception afterwards was held in Grieg Garden where graduates reflected on their time in LSJ and were celebrated by their friends and family. The Class of 2015 was one of the Program’s largest, with 103 students graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Law, Societies, and Justice.
Annually, LSJ recognizes a number of outstanding students with Awards of excellence. Laura Peach Martin was awarded the Ezra Stotland Award, which honors the graduating student deemed to have demonstrated the highest level of academic performance. Ann Thuy Huynh was honored with the Citizenship Award, which recognizes an outstanding student in both academic achievement and community service. The Karin Stromberg Award for Contribution to Social Justice was awarded to both Dashni Rahim Amin and Varsha Lakshmi Govindaraju, for their academic achievements and their commitment to the advancement of social justice.
Thank you to all the family members, friends, faculty and staff who came out to celebrate the Class of 2015. Congratulations to the outstanding Law, Societies, and Justice graduates, and welcome to the LSJ Alumni Community!
