Graduation | Virtual Live Stream - August 26, 2023

Posted by Center for Advanced Legal Studies [CALS]

Aug 15, 2023 3:00:00 PM

On Saturday, August 26, 2023, at 10:00 AM Central, Center for Advanced Legal Studies (CALS) will hold its 72nd Commencement Ceremony for graduates of its paralegal programs. Due to the large number of graduates who reside outside of the Houston area, this event will be presented via a virtual live stream to better acknowledge the accomplishments of all graduates. As always, CALS is committed to making this a special event for graduates and their friends and families.

A total of 101 paralegal credentials will be conferred. Paralegal Certificates will be awarded to 77 graduates, and Associate of Applied Science Degrees will be awarded to 24 graduates. Congratulations graduates on your hard work, dedication, and accomplishments.

The commencement address will be presented by Mischa Montgomery, Esq. Ms. Montgomery graduated from CALS with her AAS Degree in 2006, worked as a paralegal in areas such as family law, business, and commercial litigation, and continued her education at Thurgood Marshall School of Law. Mischa became an attorney in 2019. We are delighted Ms. Montgomery has agreed to provide the commencement address to our most recent graduating class.

The event will be moderated by CALS' Director of Outreach and Career Services, Tami Riggs, with contributions from members of CALS faculty and staff.
