A Message from the Class Co-Presidents

A Message from the Class Co-Presidents

Three years ago, we started a journey that we will not soon forget. We came ready to take on the unknown and to earn a degree that would empower us to make change for our communities, our families, and ourselves.

Together, we engaged in discussions about the law’s complexities and challenged each other to confront its failings. We gained greater understanding through our work in journals, SLPS, student organizations, and clinics. Through each of these endeavors, we furthered our commitment to the legal profession and to those we hope to serve.

Our class has overcome a multitude of challenges and has remained resilient nevertheless. We have laughed together, we have cried together, and above all, we have supported one another—in person and over Zoom. Law school has given us the tools to be confident practitioners and has further defined how we think of the law. It has also broadened our perspectives and helped form our views about society, the world around us, and even ourselves. And it has made us acutely aware that what is legal is not always what is just.

As we move into the next chapter of our lives, we find comfort in the experiences that have helped prepare us all to be inspiring leaders in our field. We look forward to seeing the incredible things that the Class of 2021 will accomplish, and we are honored to have been members of this class.

We want to extend our appreciation to the school’s fantastic faculty and staff, whose thoughtful instruction and tireless encouragement have helped guide us through this journey.

And of course, we would like to thank our amazing friends and family. Thank you for your endless reassurance and unwavering support. It truly takes a village, and we could not have made it without you!

With appreciation,

Alexa Homewood & Ayyan Zubair
