On April 14th, 2015, The Black Law Student Association hosted their 32nd annual Alumni Dinner Banquet at the Omni Parker House–Honoring Suffolk Law Dean Camille Nelson. For all of us, this was a night to really say thank you to our Dean who has changed the face of Suffolk Law and the lives who study the law forever.
Dean Nelson has been an integral part towards the learning experience of students and faculty at Suffolk Law School. Under her leadership, Suffolk Law has moved forward in preparing students to practice law in a rapidly evolving legal marketplace and has launched the Law School’s Institute on Law Practice Technology & Innovation, which The American Bar Association’s eLawyering Taskforce this year has recognized its law technology program among 10 top programs in the nation.

However her most notable contribution to Suffolk Law School is increasing student, faculty and administrator diversity. “Further to a successful Law School Admission Council grant application, she implemented a diversity pipeline program, DiscoverLaw.org Prelaw Undergraduate Scholars (PLUS) Program, to encourage undergraduate students from underrepresented groups to pursue a law degree, “Suffolk University Boston News.
Thank you Dean Camille Nelson for everything. And although I have only known you for the first year of my legal education at Suffolk, it feels like I’ve known you for a lifetime. Your personality; your smile; and your commitment to students and faculty alike are a one of a kind.
You came to us as a star and are leaving as one.
I hate to see you go, but I know now that God has better plans in-store for you. Hope to see you again soon.
