JD speaker Ruben Henriquez focused his remarks on the close and collegial student culture he found at Duke Law. "That will be what I'm most fortunate to take away from Duke Law, the fact that we got the chance to experience the last three years of life, in all its ups and downs, with each other," he said. "At Duke Law our classmates are our friends, not just our colleagues. ... Sharing the last three years with each other made them that much more special."
