December 2014 Valedictorian Lynn Marie Morski will be one of approximately 74 Juris Doctor students who are scheduled to walk across the stage at Copley Symphony Hall in Downtown San Diego on Saturday, December 13, 2014.
One American Legal Studies student will receive their LL.M. (Master of Laws) degree as part of the American Legal Studies program for non-U.S. lawyers.
As a part time law student as well as a licensed medical doctor, Morski works at the Veterans Administration in Mission Valley evaluating patients in the Compensation and Pension department.
The December Valedictorian says she learned a lot from Professor Joy Delman while working with her on projects involving law and medicine.
“I’m particularly grateful for Professor Delman, whose background is in health-related law, and who has always given me great advice on career paths and connected me with some great opportunities.”
Professor Delman says “Lynne Marie is always a delight to have in classes. She enhances the classroom experience, not just because of her diverse accomplishments, but because she clearly loves the law and law school. It was exciting for me to watch her so successfully tackle this new venture in her life. I am thrilled to have helped play a part in her legal education. I know she will continue to make me and TJSL very proud.”
Morski is a graduate of Webster University with a degree in Media Communication. She did her residency at the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona. Morski then did a Sports Medicine Fellowship at the University of Arizona in Tucson.
The law school is proud to announce that the commencement speaker will be TJSL Board of Trustees member Morris S. Casuto.
Casuto retired in 2010 after serving for 37 years as a member of the Professional Staff of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). He was the founding Director of the San Diego Regional Office after serving in the ADL’s offices in Columbus, Ohio and Indianapolis, Indiana. During his tenure with the ADL, he developed a national reputation as an expert on hate crimes and extremist and terrorist organizations.
The doors at Copley Symphony Hall, located at 750 B Street, will open at 9 a.m. The Graduation procession starts promptly at 10 a.m. There are no tickets required. Seating is first come, first served.
Following the graduation ceremony, all TJSL graduates along with their family and friends are invited to a reception that will be held at the law school located at 1155 Island Avenue where light hors d’oeuvres will be served.
