A letter from Dean Veryl Miles:

Dear CUA Law Family and Friends,

One of the many enduring gifts from my long connection with our law school as student, professor, and dean for the past six years is the pleasure I derive from watching our progress and our accomplishments.

Our alumni, students, and faculty members continue to distinguish themselves and honor the legal profession year after year with their (often unsung) professional achievements and good works. I hope that you can spend a few moments with this newsletter to appreciate all that goes on within our community. More
