Dear Alumni and Friends of Santa Clara Law,
As we settle into our fall semester of virtual classes at Santa Clara Law, we are looking ahead to our future. Recently, I have been enjoying having small group discussions with our new students, 1Ls, and LLMs. I am grateful for the energy, excitement, and ideas I am hearing from these new members of our Santa Clara Law community. They are engaged, enjoying classes, and feel very welcomed by everyone they have met. I am glad that our sense of community is not diminished despite the virtual environment.
At Santa Clara Law, August always brings a new class to our community, and this year is no different. Although we are ending a summer that has been unlike any before—with a worldwide pandemic, a national awakening about racial justice, and hundreds of wildfires raging in California—we are also welcoming a diverse, talented, and committed class, ready to get to work learning the law.
