“Law School is always challenging, but this class has the additional challenge of starting school during a pandemic, combining on-line learning with the traditional classroom experience,” said Admissions Dean Jennifer Stanford. “I am confident in their ability to navigate this hybrid model, as they are a strong class and we are all invested in their success.”
Scalia Law has also welcomed 32 new LLM students (11 residential and 21 online). These lawyers and practitioners are from: Saudi Arabia, Egypt, South Korea, Azerbaijan, India, USA, Poland, Malaysia, China, Hong Kong, France, Argentina, Nigeria, and Guyana.
“We are proud to welcome the Fall 2020 incoming class to the LLM program at Scalia Law,” said Brian J. Benison, Director, LLM enrollment. “This semester, the class has representatives from every continent (excluding Antarctica) and carries decades of legal experience in their home countries. They include political asylees and practicing attorneys, engineers, chemists, and economists. This is a class that already represents the Scalia Law motto of Learn. Challenge. Lead.”
Finally, Scalia Law admitted five new students to the Juris Masters program, launched in January 2020.
