An emotional crowd gathered Monday night at UC Hastings School of the Law to honor 1989 graduate Chris Stevens, the U.S. Ambassador to Libya who was killed along with three embassy members in Libya.

Professor John Diamond said: "A confident student interested in seeing justice prevail."

that was an outlook, he says helped Stevens succeed in foreign service and in his roll helping Libya form a Democracy.

Holding candles and sharing memories people who knew him and people who never met him honored his service.

Stevens had told the cean of Hastings he would come and talk to students about using a law degree to serve their country. Now that he is gone the faculty is promising to share his legacy with future generations of students.
