Dean Rudy Hasl and the Phoenix area alumni, ranging from class year 1973 to 2012, came together for a special reception at the Phoenician Resort on November 1, which was made possible by local Phoenix attorney, Michael Trauscht. Special guests included University of Arizona Law School Dean Lawrence Ponoroff, Arizona State University Law School Dean Douglas Sylvester, Phoenix School of Law Dean Shirley Mays, Arizona Supreme Court Chief Justice Rebecca White Berch, Former Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard, and former City of Phoenix Mayor Paul Johnson.
When asked why he hosted the reception, Mr. Trauscht stated, “The purpose of the reception was to promote the interaction between TJSL and the three Arizona law schools and lay a framework for internships for TJSL students. I am extremely impressed with the progressive approach to legal education that TJSL has adopted under the leadership of Dean Hasl.”
Recent graduate, Jessica Williams, exclaimed, “It was great seeing Dean Hasl at the Alumni Reception in Scottsdale. I truly appreciated the TJSL news he shared as well as his insight into the future of its graduates. His words of encouragement inspired me. I am confident that the bar(s) ahead of me are achievable and even more importantly worth achieving. My legal education, though expensive, was an investment I am proud that I made. Thank you, Dean Hasl, for reminding me that my future is bright and that I will make a difference in the years to come. I am excited for the future of TJSL; we are lucky to have such a strong leadership team!”
