Commencement 2020

Dear Members of the Class of 2020,

On behalf of the New York Law School Board of Trustees and Faculty, congratulations on the extraordinary challenges you have overcome this spring and throughout your law school careers.

I am honored to have served as your Dean, and I have never been more inspired by a group of graduates. You have completed your legal studies against the backdrop of a global pandemic. In the process, you have worked remarkably hard, adapted to unprecedented changes, navigated personal difficulties, and advocated for your classmates and communities.

It is fitting that you have been tested by fire, because your skills and commitment are needed now more than ever. The pandemic has laid bare the deep injustices that plague our nation. It is both a calling and a gift that as lawyers, you get to be part of building a better, stronger, more just, and more resilient society.

As you prepare for the bar exam and practice, take nothing for granted; leave nothing to chance. Make focus, preparation, and hard work your priorities. Be present and accountable in every moment you are called on for your knowledge and leadership. Your clients, colleagues, family, friends, and you yourself deserve no less.

Remember always that you are part of a 130-year-old community of strivers, dreamers, and doers. We are #NYLSStrong like the city that inspires us. You will always be part of New York’s law school. And now, you join the ranks of our distinguished alumni.

I can’t wait to celebrate in person with you, your family, and your friends. For now, we gather in spirit and in shared commitment to the ideals of our profession. I know you will make us all proud.

Anthony W. Crowell
Dean and President, Professor of Law

**Prior to the Conferring of Degrees ceremony, provisional honors are calculated based on a student’s cumulative grade point average at the conclusion of the preceding (fall) semester. Final honors are calculated at the end of the spring semester and include all grades. It is possible to have provisional honors granted for the Conferring of Degrees ceremony but ultimately not to have final honors confirmed after graduation if a student’s grade point average is not in the top 25 percent of the graduating class. Alternatively, a student could receive a different honor upon graduation (e.g. cum laude as provisional honors and magna cum laude upon graduation).

In Memoriam: Patrick Holahan

The NYLS community warmly remembers Patrick Holahan, a member of the Class of 2020. Patrick passed away on January 9, 2017, while he was a first-year student in the Evening Division. He was a warm and kind person who—just one semester into law school—stood out among his classmates for his good humor, friendship, and commitment to his studies. Patrick excelled in his academics and showed great promise as a future lawyer. He also quickly attracted a loyal group of friends and earned the respect of his teachers. Patrick’s life was cut tragically short, but his memory and example are still very much with us. We are proud to present his NYLS degree to his family, in recognition of his achievements inside and outside the classroom. We miss him, we treasure our memories of him, and we will carry his wisdom and kindness with us for the years to come.
