Charlotte, N.C. (PRWEB) December 14, 2011
Forty-eight graduates will cross the stage at Halton Theater on Friday, Dec. 16 when Charlotte School of Law, the only law school in North Carolina’s most populous city, confers Juris Doctor degrees as part of its December Recognition and Hooding Ceremony.
“Seeing graduates receive their hoods and cross the stage as the result of countless hours of practical preparation is one of the most rewarding sights for the CharlotteLaw community,” said Denise Spriggs, Interim Dean of Charlotte School of Law. “Beyond the time we have spent together to this point, it is now equally important that our graduates continually take stock in the importance of life-long learning and grow to become good stewards of their communities, wherever their legal journey should take them.”
The keynote speaker for the 7 p.m. ceremony will be R. Andrew Murray, District Attorney, 26th Prosecutorial District of North Carolina, which includes Charlotte and Mecklenburg County.
Murray graduated magna cum laude from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and earned a law degree from the University of North Carolina School of Law. Murray began his law career with the Mecklenburg County District Attorney’s office, where he served as an Assistant District Attorney for four years. He also worked as a partner in private practice for 14 years. Prior to his election as District Attorney, Murray served for 30 years as a member of the United States Coast Guard Active and Reserve forces.
Halton Theater is located at 1206 Elizabeth Ave. on the campus of Central Piedmont Community College. For directions and parking information, visit http://tix.cpcc.edu/parking-directions.
