Attorney Patti Ramseur of Ramseur Maultsby LLP in Greensboro will highlight a December ceremony on Elon University's main campus for graduates in Elon Law's Class of 2022.

A leader in the North Carolina Bar Association will share advice inspired by her distinguished career and offer encouragement to graduates when she visits Elon University’s main campus to deliver the Commencement address for Elon Law’s Class of 2022.

Greensboro employment attorney Patti Ramseur, president-elect of the North Carolina Bar Association, joins graduates and their families for a ceremony that begins at 10 a.m. on Friday, December 9, in Alumni Gym.

Elon University will confer Juris Doctors on 127 graduates from the only American law school with a curriculum strategically designed to be completed in 2.5 years, allowing graduates to take the February bar exam and begin their careers nearly six months sooner than colleagues from other schools.
