I need at least four volunteers to hand out reader cards to the graduates at the Legal Studies Commencement, help them with pinning their caps on, lining them up for the procession and gathering up all the supplies to bring inside once the graduates are all inside for the ceremony.
The ceremony is on Sunday, May 14th.
I arrive at noon, the house opens to guests at 1pm, the graduates are expected to be there between 1 and 1:15pm, so I need help at noon to get things set up.
You'll have seats reserved up front in Zellerbach and please enjoy Cupcakin' afterwards.
It's actually really fun to see what the ceremony will be like when you walk ;-)
Please let me know asap if you can for sure make it! Just reply to this message.
I will forever be in your debt.
Please ONLY tell me you can come if you know FOR SURE that you can come.
It's pretty rotten to have folks bail at the last minute. Aieeee!!!

I’m a longtime Bay Area legal recruiter and a graduate (1994) of the Cal Legal Studies program. Over the years I have placed several graduates of your program (mostly through referrals and LinkedIn contacts) with my law firm, corporate, government and non-profit clients. I would like to offer my free placement services to your program (I am paid by my client firms when they hire my candidates—there is no cost to job seekers). If you or any of your colleagues has any questions, I would be happy to set up a call at your or their convenience.
We would love to partner with the Legal Studies program at Cal again in 2023 as we have several open positions for your graduates at the moment.
Thanks for your time and have a great day!
