According to 36 U.S.C. §116, the last Monday in May is Memorial Day. The United States’ most solemn holiday has roots all the way back to the 1800s. On May 11, 1950, Congress passed a joint resolution which requests that the President issue a Memorial Day proclamation each year. This year’s proclamation can be found on the White House’s website. This Memorial Day we ask that you take time to remember the men and women who died serving in our military from all generations and from all wars. Let their sacrifices be honored with peace.

For the graduating 3Ls, this is undoubtedly one of the most exciting times. You can take off your backpack, put away your highlighters, relax and enjoy the Commencement festivities. While this is your first time being a law graduate, it is not your first time at a graduation. It is interesting to note that so much about graduation is ritual. For example, the song Pomp and Circumstance is well known as “the Graduation song.” However, it is interesting to note the song wasn’t always associated with graduation and some people think it is associated with “Macho Man” Randy Savage!
