SPECIAL TO THE
The Western Michigan University Thomas M. Cooley Law School (WMU Law School) graduates from Florida’s Second District were sworn into the State Bar on May 2, granting them authorization to practice law before the state’s courts. The ceremony was held at Stetson University’s College of Law in Tampa.
WMU-Cooley graduate Maryam Saleh provided the response on behalf of the new lawyers.
In her remarks, Saleh challenged the new members to go out and become exceptional attorneys.
She encouraged the new attorneys to “Never be afraid to take a public stance on systematic practices they believe are harming a certain group of people and also pledge to stand up for the defenselessness and oppressed and to hold each other accountable when it comes to acting on that promise.”
Additional WMU-Cooley graduates who were sworn in included Celine Delice, Sarah Harris, Elena Krekovic, Necia Mohammad, Brandon Moultrie and Jonathan Swinson.
