Reunited in Celebration
Due to the remote nature of the past two SLS graduation ceremonies, 173 graduates from the classes of 2020 and 2021 returned to campus for an in-person celebration and to mark their accomplishments during their time at Stanford Law. While speakers for the class of 2021 delivered their speeches at the 2021 virtual graduation ceremony, the student and faculty speeches for the class of 2020 were postponed until this year.
