The School of Law hosted its Fall Convocation on August 21, 2012 in the Blake Law Center. The event, which brought together students and faculty to start a new academic year of learning and intellectual growth, featured Chair of the New York Board of Law Examiners Diane F. Bosse as the keynote speaker. Bosse addressed the newly admitted students saying "this law school experience will be over in a flash. Savor it. You will make lifelong friends here. The shared experience is an unbreakable bond. You’ll acquire the tools that you will rely on your entire career and you will be reborn here into a responsible, caring, ethical professional." Following her speech, University President Anthony S. Caprio presented her with a President's Medallion.
