Stories from The Docket
The Docket is the the law school's biannual newsletter featuring our alumni stories, accomplishments as well as other developments in the law school community.
They came before the law school was really a law school and they blazed a remarkable trail. This edition of The Docket is dedicated to the Class of 2009, telling just a few stories about this extraordinary bunch of dreamers and doers, five years into their careers.
In 2006, a single goal drove Adria DeLaune, ’09, to ignore the doubts in her mind and leave the Mississippi River Delta, where all her friends, family and memories resided, to attend law school in Philadelphia.
From May through November of 2014, Kandahar Air Field in Afghanistan served as Capt. Carlos Ramirez-Vazquez’s home office, where he served as chief of military justice – the lead prosecutor – for the U.S. Army’s 1st Cavalry Division.
If he were to go to law school all over again, Perry Liss, ’09, would do some things differently. Happily, there’s no need for a do-over; not only has Liss established a successful practice in Center City, he has made it to the SuperLawyers list of Rising Stars. Twice.
More than any member of the Class of 2009, Mike Lee has grabbed the media spotlight, gaining notice for his devastatingly effective advocacy in The Wall Street Journal and Al Jazeera, as well as local outlets like The Philadelphia Inquirer.
