The final group of Empire Class of 2014 Juris Doctor graduates has worked in each of the five pro bono clinics offered at Empire, contributing to a class total of 87% participation in the clinics. This dedication to community service is indeed impressive and contributed to Empire College's national recognition on the President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll the past two years.
It's always interesting to see what undergraduate degrees and professional experience Empire law students possess. Today's trio of grads is blending backgrounds in linguistics and technology, global studies and Worker's Compensation benefits, and special education/deafness with their legal education.
Among the three of them, today's graduates participated in all five of Empire's pro bono law clinics plus the Moot Court team! They have taken advantage of every opportunity for the theoretical and practical legal education offered at Empire Law School.
Today's trio of law grads includes the class valedictorian (a former bank executive), a participant in the Immigration Law Clinic who received a Pro Bono Award for her contributions, and a member of the 2014 Moot Court Team that took third place in brief writing.
As the Juris Doctor graduates of the Empire College School of Law Class of 2014 prepare for their commencement exercises this Sunday afternoon, we thought it would be fun to introduce them through a series of blog posts. This group of dynamic people entered law school with diverse educational and employment backgrounds. We wish them the best of luck as they pursue their careers in law and contribute further to the community.

There are over one hundred federally recognized Indian tribes in California, ranging from the Yurok tribe on the north coast to the Fort Yuma Quechan tribe on the border of Arizona and Mexico. Each tribe is a sovereign “nation within a nation” with the inherent power to regulate its internal affairs generally free from state intrusion. Indian tribes have a rich historical legacy, which, unfortunately, is scarred by repeated attempts to eradicate their presence and diminish their historical land base.
The finale of introductions for the Empire College School of Law Class of 2013 includes the valedictorian, Christopher Stoll. His bio, like the other 17 members of the class, illustrates the variety of career and educational backgrounds from which Empire law students come. The discipline and critical thinking skills learned while studying law will assist them in their future endeavors.
