On August 20, 2007, the Moritz College of Law Class of 2010 started its first day of law school. The 203 students are the most highly credentialed in the history of the College with a median LSAT score of 162 and a median undergraduate GPA of 3.61. The class ranges in age from 21-37 and is comprised of 55 percent men, 45 percent women and 24 percent students of color.
Members of the Class of 2010 come to Moritz from 100 different colleges and universities, from 26 different states and from 2 foreign countries.
As is typically true of law students, their interests and talents extend far beyond the academy. The Class of 2010 includes actors and actresses; a poet, a playwright, musicians skilled in the drums, piano, violin, and guitar; ballet, ballroom, jazz, and hip-hop dancers; and vocalists across a range of styles.
A number of students participated in competitive sports while in college including, crew, cross-country, equestrian events, fencing, football, golf, soccer, and track and field. Several have competed in track and field and swimming at NCAA national events. Some students also participate in mountain bike competitions, ultimate Frisbee competitions, marathons, martial arts, rock-climbing, sailing, SCUBA diving, and volleyball. Others have competed at the national level in forensics and mock trial competition.
There are several teachers, engineers, financial analysts, small business owners, real estate professionals, and legal or congressional interns. There are also a reverse steel mill operator, a valve technician, a range of therapists, journalists, and a union organizer.
The students have volunteered in political campaigns on the local, state, and national levels for each of the major political parties. Several have been presidents or held other high office in their undergraduate student government.
Some have had significant military experience - others have worked for the Peace Corp, Americorps, and other non-profit entities.
As a group, they have fulfilled leadership and/or volunteer roles across a broad range of student and community organizations including, but certainly not limited to, Amnesty International, Big Brother/Big Sister, Habitat for Humanity, the Red Cross, the Humane Society, CASA, the Sierra Club, and many others
Welcome, Class of 2010.
