Law Student Gets Married, then Goes to Legal Writing Class

Hargrove, Ruth I just finished giving a guest lecture to second semester students in a legal writing class taught by Professor Ruth Hargrove at California Western School of Law in San Diego.  (She's pictured here.  Many of you met her at the legal writing luncheon in New Orleans.)

One of her students GOT MARRIED this morning and then went to her legal writing class at 1:15 p.m.

Our other students will now have to come up with really good reasons for missing a class.  Getting married is no longer enough!  And it seems to me that Professor Hargrove may have found the most dedicated student of legal writing ever!

Mark, I am sure that the student came to class because she heard the gossip that you were going to be a guest.
Or maybe it's because I've told my students that some years ago, I finished a summary judgment argument at 5:00 p.m. and had a baby at 8:00 p.m., so a sniffle doesn't cut it for me as an excuse for missing class or court.

That is true dedication. I am sure, in no small part, to ABA class restrictions. Trust me, it's scary being a student knowing you can only miss so many before you get withdrawn.
