LAS VEGAS, NV – Today, U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV) delivered the commencement speech to the graduating class of 2019 at the University of Nevada Las Vegas Boyd School of Law.
“As I look out at all of the graduates here today, it excites me to think about where you all are heading next. Some of you may be going to work at law firms — here in Nevada or somewhere else — although I hope it’s Nevada, because being born or raised here, you know how wonderful our state is, and how your contributions lift us higher,” said Senator Rosen. “You will encounter those twists and turns, and they will take you to places you couldn’t have imagined before. Like myself, and many others, you will undoubtedly have many journeys and challenges both personal and professional. You will feel those twists and turns, but if you stay focused, work hard, and remain dedicated to serving others, your jobs might change, but the legacy of your career will remain constant. Your career won’t be defined by your job title, but by the work you have done to make life better for others.”
BACKGROUND: There are a total of 120 graduates receiving a Juris Doctor degree, and 4 students receiving a Master of Laws. Ninety-three percent of this year’s graduating class is made up of in-state residents.
