4 SUMMER 20 14 S T E V E Y E AT E R Dean Francis J. Mootz III welcomed students and their families during orientation week. DIVERSITY DEFINES 2013 INCOMING CLASS Pacific McGeorge welcomed 18 graduate law students (LL.M. and J.S.D.), 6 foreign exchange students, and 11 Master of Science in Law students to the fall 2013 class, in addition to 162 J.D. students. These committed and diverse students joined Pacific McGeorge as it celebrates the 90th anniversary of its establishment as a law school. “These students are a welcome addition to our academic community, where we are engaged in fundamental curriculum changes to ensure that our students are prepared for contemporary legal practice when they graduate,” said Dean Francis J. Mootz III. “I am particularly pleased with the diversity of our fall incoming students.” As part of a strategic plan begun in 2009, Pacific McGeorge has set its total enrollment target at an average of 600 J.D. students each year. With this entering class, there are currently 651 J.D. students enrolled at Pacific McGeorge. The entering J.D. class includes students from around the United States and several foreign countries. They were carefully selected for their commitment to a legal career, and the full-time day and part-time evening sections are similarly credentialed. Dean Mootz observed that the new students are pursuing a variety of degrees, though the core of their educational experience will be the same. “We are excited about our recent efforts to ensure that a Pacific McGeorge education provides our students with the skills and capacities they will need to succeed in a rapidly changing economy,” Dean Mootz said.
