A crowd of more than 250 witnessed Georgia State College of Law alum, the Honorable Cynthia J. Becker ('87), swear in 2006 graduates during the 8th Annual Newly Minted Lawyers Reception Nov. 15 at The Commerce Club.
For only the second time, the event featured a swearing-in ceremony for law graduates, making the reception memorable for the new attorneys, their guests, alumni, faculty and staff present.
Dean Steven Kaminshine welcomed attendees, who were also greeted by Dawn Jones ('00), president of the Graduate Leadership Council, which hosted the event.
The new lawyers were then introduced to various alumni initiatives including the Graduate Health Network by James R. Westbury ('94), the Intellectual Property Law Initiative by Jeff Kuester ('93), the Oglethorpe Legal Society by James Hurt Jr. ('03) and the Cobb County Alumni Group by Michael Manely ('89).
