Elevating Legal Education

 

 From the Desk of the Dean

A Holiday Message to the University of Wyoming Law Community

As we enjoy this holiday season and prepare to welcome the New Year, I reflect on the many ways UW Law has been elevated by the extraordinary alumni, faculty, staff, students, and friends in our legal community. We have much to celebrate and be thankful for as 2022 comes to a close, including the groundbreaking on our new College of Law facility expansion, the launch of new programming in our centers and clinics, and the return to normalcy in our teaching and scholarly routines following the pandemic.

I am humbled and uplifted by the many great students we have and the ways in which we contribute to the State and its citizens through the work of our legal service clinics. I am also proud of the way we care for one another at our law school while sustaining our mission of excellence in legal education. Finally, I am grateful for the support and appreciation our UW Law alumni have for their alma mater as reflected by the many generous gifts and donations we have received.

Thank you all for making UW Law a wonderful place to call home, and I wish each of you and your families happiness, health, and peace this holiday season.

With gratitude,

Dean Klint Alexander
