Graduation Gifts For Law Students
While the law graduate in your life may still have years to go before they’re a fully-fledged attorney, you can jump the gun and buy them their first gavel ahead of time. While this is something that’s often reserved for judges, it’s still applicable to the legal world that your graduate has found themselves in.
Beautifully handcrafted from walnut wood, this Gavel And Sound Block Set would look impressive on a new lawyer’s desk. It is a solid item that can either be used as a decorative piece or it can be put to good use and end legal debates (the sound block works very well). The wood can also be engraved with the recipient’s name and graduation date (just to give it that personal touch). A real unique graduation gift.
