Congratulations Carolina Law Class of 2023!

On Saturday, May 13, 2023, at Carmichael Arena, UNC School of Law celebrated the graduation of the Class of 2023. Unlike any class in the history of the law school, the Class of 2023 came to Carolina Law in the fall of 2020 and was in-person for just a couple of days before having to go to remote learning. They endured the challenges of law school with the added difficulty of not being in person. They persevered and worked even harder to develop friendships, engage with summer jobs and experience clinical work and externships in a way most Carolina Law alumni have never experienced.
