“I attended an open house at Richmond and I remember the first time I met Dean Rahman in person. As she approached I reached out my hand to shake hers. Immediately she told me to put my hand down and proceeded to give me a hug, telling me that I was 'part of the Richmond family now.' It was at that moment I knew that there was something special about this law school." - Chris Jones, L’12
