Center for Advanced Legal Studies held its 65th Commencement Ceremony for graduates of its paralegal programs on Saturday, February 22, 2020 at South Texas College of Law. It was one of the best ever!

A total of 105 paralegal credentials were conferred. Paralegal Certificates were awarded to 90 graduates, and Associate of Applied Science Degrees were awarded to 15 graduates. Many graduates were able to attend in person, while those unable to attend were able to view the ceremony via the live stream. Congratulations graduates on your hard work, dedication, and accomplishment.

David DeCasper

The commencement address was presented by David DeCasper, a Senior Paralegal at the firm Adame Garza, LLP in Houston, Texas where he manages the firm's Pre-Litigation Personal Injury Department. David is also a graduate of CALS. His address was insightful, inspiring, and witty. Thank you again David.

Additional comments and congratulations were provided by Academic Dean Thomas B. Swanson, J.D. The event was moderated by CALS' Director of Outreach and Career Services, Tami Riggs.
