“All of you now have shown us your wisdom, your courage, your service to others and your dedication to leadership. You have those qualities deep within you. You have proven that to all of us. What we ask of you now is to remember who you are and remember to give back, and we will all remain proud of you for the rest of our lives.”
- David Gergen, adviser to four United States presidents, Director of the Center for Public Leadership and Professor of Public Service at the Harvard Kennedy School, and chair of Elon University’s Law School Advisory Board, from the inaugural commencement address to Elon Law graduates, May 2009
"Elon Law graduates confront a world of new and unprecedented challenges. But in those challenges may lie their enormous opportunities and possibilities for leadership and service, and already they have shown themselves fit for the challenge ... Already they have demonstrated a responsibility to their communities that transcends earning a living. Already they have recognized their responsibility to be civically engaged, their responsibility both to serve and to lead ... in their so doing, we predict they will continue to work to revive those historic ideals of the legal profession."
- George R. Johnson, Jr., Dean of Elon University School of Law, in a May 17, 2009 column in the News and Record of Greensboro
“I want to tell you how deeply grateful I am for your historic contributions to the founding of this law school, for helping it become better and stronger, and especially for your pioneering spirit. You helped found a law school and that is an important life achievement ... Today, you are charged to use your knowledge for justice, your intelligence in the pursuit of goodness, your keen minds for seeking truth, your understanding of the complex in the cause of building a better society, your discernment for making fair decisions, your leadership in the cause of peace making. This is what your alma mater expects of you. Good luck and god speed.”
- Leo M. Lambert, President of Elon University, in his charge to Elon Law's graduating class concluding the law school's 2009 Commencement ceremony, May 2009
