New Class Welcomed to USF

August 24, 2010

A new class of 251 Juris Doctor students, including 41 percent students of color and 53 percent women, joined the USF School of Law last week. The entering class was chosen from nearly 4,700 applicants and boasts a median GPA of 3.45 and median LSAT score of 159.

The 188 full-time and 63 part-time students that comprise the new class participated in orientation activities last week. In addition to their courses, students attended an introduction to the JD program, an overview of student services, a mixer with the USF law community, an informational fair, and a welcome dinner.

“I offer two thoughts to our new students. First, please know that every one of you is here because we believe you will succeed. We are confident that you will become the skilled, ethical, committed professionals that the law school has trained for nearly a century,” Dean Jeffrey Brand said at the Aug. 17 welcome dinner. “Second, your passionate personal statements remind us that you come to the law school with dreams and aspirations, and that it is our responsibility as legal educators to support you to make those dreams reality.”

To end orientation week, more than 100 students, faculty, and family volunteers participated in the Law In Motion Service Day on Aug. 21. Volunteers sorted food for the San Francisco Food Bank, served meals at the St. Anthony Dining Room, prepared bag lunches for the Glide Memorial Foundation, gardened at the AIDS Memorial Grove, and spruced up the Family House, which assists families with children receiving treatment at UCSF Children’s Hospital.

The USF School of Law has also welcomed 23 Master of Laws students from 12 countries, including Ethiopia, Thailand, Philippines, Serbia, and Hungary.
