May 22, 2020 - University of Houston Law Center faculty members, administrators, and alumni offered their congratulations in a video released to students who recently completed their legal education. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent closure of the University of Houston, an in-person commencement ceremony will be held at a later date.
"Graduates, we are proud of you," said Dean Leonard M. Baynes. "You made it through Hurricane Harvey and now the coronavirus. These are tough situations that will make you stronger and more resilient.
"We've enjoyed teaching you, and we look forward to celebrating your future careers. You're graduating from a top-tier law school, and you should feel tremendous pride in being a UH Law Center graduate.”
