Juris Doctor Graduate - Brandon Gray

Pin It!

The day that we have waited three long YEARS for finally came and went. My husband graduated from Law School and is now one step closer to becoming an attorney :-) The ceremony took place at Copley Symphony Hall in downtown San Diego - and it was a gorgeous venue. Watching Brandon graduate was more emotional than I thought it would be. I am continually amazed by Brandon's dedication to school - and the amount of hours he can spend locked up in his room with all of his text books. I also continually fall in love with him for that brain of his. *WARNING: Bragging ahead* In addition to receiving his Juris Doctorate, he was 1 of 5 students who received an award for graduating Summa Cum Laude - which is the highest honors you can receive (generally awarded to the top 2%). He was also the Executive Editor of the Law Review and a member of the Moot Court. Take a peek at the Law School program - if I didn't love him so much - I would be annoyed by him ;-)

(Love the last part) After the ceremony we couldn't wait to hug the new grad and take a ton a few pictures with him.

My Dad has always wanted me to go to Law School and although I didn't - I did the next best thing...I married someone that did. My Dad couldn't be more proud of Brandon.

After pictures, we went to lunch at C-Level at the harbor. It's a gorgeous restaurant right on the water. And who came by on their sail boat? Larry Richards - a really close family friend of Brandon's parents.

After lunch, Brandon took us for a tour of his campus. Here is a picture of my mom and myself in the Moot Court Room :-)

After that, it was back to the house for coffee and cupcakes and family :-) And yes, I had to throw up a few cheesy decorations.

A celebration without cupcakes, isn't a celebration at all. (As usual, I ordered these cupcakes from Alicia at

Andddd, of course we each wanted our photo with the graduate :-)

Kandi said hugging Brandon is the closest she'll ever be to a Law Degree.

Brandon's parents raised an amazing man!!

Way to go Shushi! You did it! I love you more than anything on earth.

NEXT: That little three day quiz called the California Bar exam. Bar prep classes started two days after graduation and will continue for the next two months. I have a feeling that this summer won't be our favorite.
