The December graduation for students from Denver Law's Environmental and Natural Resources Law Graduate Program was a proud occasion for many graduating students and none more than Jiaxi Wang.  Ms. Wang is from Chengde, China, which is located near Beijing.

Ms. Wang's parents traveled from Chengde to Denver to watch their daughter graduate with a Master's in Law degree.

Don Smith, director of the program, said, "Graduation day is always a proud moment in the lives of our students and their families.  And we are especially proud of international students, such as Jiaxi, who add such richness and diversity to our program.  Jiaxi was a student of mine and I got to know her well.  She will make major contributions to protecting our world's environment, especially in the development of more renewable energy.  All of us at Denver Law will watch her career develop with much admiration and pride."
