A Duty to Civility

Don’t be a jerk: SCU’s 2019 law class gets real

Don’t be an “obstreperous jerk.” Embrace the “big uglies.” That was the commencement advice Dorian Daley J.D. ’86 gave to SCU Law’s 2019 graduating class. The executive vice president and general counsel of Oracle stressed that lawyers must be exemplars of civility and integrity. Acting like a jerk is an impediment to one’s own brand and the entire profession, she says. Students honored at graduation include Brian Pettis J.D. ’19, winning the Inez Mabie Award for Outstanding Graduate, Maria Palomares J.D. ’19, receiving the Dean’s Leadership Award, and Ariel Keller J.D. ’19, who earned the John B. Bates Jr. Dispute Resolution Award.
