My Daughter, JD

My oldest daughter graduated from Phoenix School of Law today. She is the exiting Student Body President, a Moot Court competitor and was selected by her peers to speak on behalf of the student body at their graduation ceremony. 

This is her speech.  I have no idea where she gets her sense of humor and affability from, but I'm certainly one proud father today.

Her speech was great! And listening to it while thinking back 37 years, I realize that although Facebook (and other technology she mentions) is new, some things about law school never change. (Especially the part about free legal advice for life!)

Congratulations to all! Well done!
