For the second time in my life, I will be speaking at a law school graduation. Six years ago, I was selected by my classmates to serve as the student speaker. Giving that speech remains one of the greatest honors of my life.
When I gave that speech, I asked my classmates for help. I encouraged them to email me their thoughts on law school and graduation. Listening to my classmates was enlightening. Their insights helped me give a better speech than if I had written it by myself.
On May 21, 2011, I’ll again stand before a graduating law school class. This time as President of the school’s alumni association. Having sat through many a graduation speech, I will keep this one very short. Probably about 2.5 minutes. No one is there to hear me. Plus, I really like short speeches. Maybe I should tweet it and keep it to 140 characters.
So I’ll ask you, my enlightened readers, what would you say to the graduating class of 2011?
