The admissions office traveled more than 102,000 miles — by land, rail, and air — to find them, the Richmond Law class of 2020. This year’s first-year students come from 63 American and six international universities. The youngest is 20; the eldest, 68. Five served in the military. Others previously worked as a teacher, a rancher, a political reporter, and a music coordinator. There’s an Irish folk singer, a professional ballet dancer, a strongwoman, and a few chefs and bakers. No matter what brought them to Richmond, they’re all Spiders now.
