Duggar fans know that Jill’s husband Derick Dillard has been in law school. Throughout his time in school, the couple has shared several updates, keeping fans in the loop. They talked about the ups and downs, explaining how stressful it was at times. Not only was it difficult for Derick because of his tests and assignments, but it was also a tricky time for Jill. The pair shares two sons, Israel and Samuel, so they kept Jill busy while Derick was swamped with work.
Now, it looks like the stress of Derick being in school is gone. He’s moved on to the next phase in his life. So, the whole family is celebrating. Jill took to social media to share a special update about her husband.
Jill & Derick Dillard share big graduation news
On social media, Jill shared an Instagram post announcing Derick’s graduation on May 10. But she just now got around to sharing more photos from Derick’s big day. In a blog post on the Dillard Family Blog, Jill shared a whole collection of photos from the celebration.
“Although law school wasn’t easy, Derick enjoyed it overall and had many great experiences! While in school, he enjoyed working in several different areas of public service law at both the state and federal levels, including prosecution, defense and judicial work! He was grateful to receive a scholarship through the ‘Public Service Fellowship’ which allowed him to gain great experience as a ‘Public Service Fellow.’ He was also honored to be part of a small group of students selected for the Arkansas Public Service Academy, and he even received a ‘ProBono & Community Engagement’ award at graduation that recognized his many extra hours volunteering in public service outside of work and class!”
The post from Jill also gives fans a look at what’s to come for Derick. She writes, “While in school, he worked hard to get ‘Rule XV’ certified, which allowed him to represent clients as a law student under supervision through the law school in both the Criminal & Immigration legal clinics. He also graduated with a certificate in Criminal Law. Eventually, he hopes to work in some type of public service law.”
Along with the blog post, Jill uploaded a YouTube video about the graduation. In response, fans are sending their congratulations.
