Today, the second day of graduations of summer 2012, sees students from the School of Social and Political Sciences and the School of Law graduate. In 1912, law students Alexander H. Aiton and Thomas Alphonsus O’Hare graduated with a BL, both winning prizes over the course of their undergraduate degree.
Alexander H. Aiton was an excellent student who won the 3rd prize for Scots Law and was ‘Eminently Distinguished’ in his Conveyancing class. He was also given an ‘honour’ for ‘Eminence in an exam for prizes presented by the Faculty of Procurators, Glasgow’, as listed in the annual prize lists included in the University Calendar:Thomas Alphonsus O’Hare, a classmate of Alexander’s, won 2nd Prize for Civil Law. Upon graduation, a hundred years ago, these men no doubt had bright careers in Law ahead of them. We wish all today’s graduates success with their future careers!
