On Friday, May 22, 2015, the Barry University Dwayne O. Andreas School of Law held its commencement ceremony for the Class of 2015. Among the crowd was our attorney, Nicholas Primrose, who attended as part of the Dean’s Party as the President of the Barry Law Alumni Chapter. Ninth Circuit Court Judge Alice L. Blackwell was the commencement speaker.
After the graduates had their traditional doctoral hoods placed, Mr. Primrose was honored to speak to the newest Barry Law Alums. His speech stressed the importance of remaining close with your fellow classmates and reminiscing throughout the years about the memories made during law school. He shared memories he has from his time as a law student and certain classes and subjects.
He advised the crowd, “Today, you renew your pledge to be proud examples of our alma mater through your generosity, service to the community, and the utmost ethical, respectful, and responsible practice of law” and reminded them that “your reputation in the legal community is the hardest thing to build up and easiest and quickest thing to destroy.”
Finally, he gave a motivational push and well wishes to all of the graduates as they begin studying for the Florida Bar exam in July, “study hard, stay tough and hungry, reach out when you need encouragement, and pass the bar exam the first time.”
Mr. Primrose was elected the President of the Barry Law Alumni Chapter in December 2014, after serving a year as the Secretary. He graduated Barry Law School in 2013, where he received high honors in the Litigation Honors Certificate program. He was the President of their prestigious, National Championship Trial Team. Mr. Primrose joined Wooten Kimbrough, P.A. in August 2013, where he litigates personal injury matters.
