Well, today is the big day. We have zero finals this morning, but this afternoon there is a small upper-division final (California Family Law with Professor Petersil) — and one large remaining final for our first-year students, Introduction to Ethical Lawyering with Professors Bost, Cochran, and Gash.
As is tradition, sounds of whooping and hollering will be heard around the law school when the first-years emerge from their final “final” around 4pm this afternoon. It is one of my favorite moments of the year, and I look forward to being there with congratulatory high-fives!
The term “1L” will no longer be applicable to anyone around here by the end of today. Those currently carrying that moniker will soon learn that they can call themselves “rising 2Ls.” So, by day’s end, we only have rising 2Ls, rising 3Ls, and graduates — and lots of relief and smiles!
It has been great fun chronicling this academic year. I intend to keep posting throughout the summer with news and notes surrounding Pepperdine Law.
