Congratulations to our graduates!
Strong finishes . . . a Weigand tradition!
Bobby Chipman graduated from Washburn's dual degree program where he earned M.B.A. and J.D. simultaneously! Bobby graduated with a 3.83 g.p.a. (magna cum laude) and was 2nd in his class. He also graduated with distinction and a 4.0 g.p.a. in the MBA program. This summer, before bar studying began, Bobby studied for and passed the Regulation portion of the CPA exam. He has moved to Kansas City and is currently studying for the bar exam at UMKC School of Law. Before he begins work in the fall he plans to take the remaining three portions of the CPA exam. Bobby will join fellow Weigand Thomas Ruane at Polsinelli in the Kansas City office this fall.
J.D. was only half the celebration at his house! On the same date as Washburn Law School's commencement, his wife, Chrissy, graduated as a Doctor of Pharmacy. Nathaniel graduated magna cum laude, was 3rd in his class, and received the Ungermann Award for Excellence in Clinical Representation this semester. After a summer of bar prep, Nathaniel will begin his career at Fleeson Gooing in Wichita. Firm members and Weigand Scholars Roarke Gordon and Dan Lawrence look forward to Nathaniel's addition to their team!
Matthew Schippers will continue as a student. The University of Kansas School of Law graduate will relocate to New York to participate in the LL.M in Taxation program at NYU Law School. Following a year in New York City, Matthew will return to his roots to become an associate at Triplett, Woolf & Garretson LLC in Wichita. Matthew graduated in the top ten percent of his class at KU Law. This spring, he was awarded the UMB Bank Excellence in Estate Planning Award and the Robert E. Edmunds Prize in Corporation and Securities Law.
