Teleconference with the Chief Justice

Regent Jurist-in-Residence Leroy R. Hassell, Sr. made a special appearance during today's chapel via telecommunication from his office in Richmond.

Hassell is the Chief Justice of the Virginia Supreme Court. He visits the campus for a week each year to challenge students and spur them on to excellence.

A graduate of Harvard Law School, Hassell said today, "Because of my ties to Regent Law and my deep affection for your Dean and your purpose, I feel like I am an alum of this University."

While unable to leave Richmond, he wanted to be present for the announcement of the winner of the Leroy Rountree Hassell, Sr. Writing Competition, an annual competition named for his Honor.
