In a commencement address filled with hope, US Congressman Robert “Bobby” Scott ’73 said this to BC Law’s Class of 2019: “I can’t wait to see the best that is in all of you. Our future is brighter because you took the harder path forward. In life and work you will be tempted to choose the easier path. But when faced with the temptation to take the easier route, I hope you remember the Jesuit principles that Boston College Law School seeks to instill in each of its students: public service, social justice, and a commitment to excellence.”
Two hundred and forty-five graduates received JD degrees at the 86th Commencement exercises May 24, including one December 2018 graduate. Sixteen LLM students also received degrees.
