In this family is the love of the law.
Judge Judy awarded her granddaughter Sarah Rose her Juris Doctor from New York Law School.
The legendary TV lawyer, who graduated from the same school in 1965, appeared at the college’s commencement ceremony on Thursday, where Rose, 24, was among the graduates.
In a photo shared exclusively with The Post, Legal Eagle (real name Judith Sheindlin), 79, beamed as she posed next to her granddaughter, who was wearing her graduation gown.
“I’m so honored to share this moment with my grandmother,” Rose told the Post. “Following in their footsteps and continuing their legacy is my proudest achievement.”
During Thursday’s ceremony, Sheindlin also received her second honorary degree from law school. She also served as the ceremony’s keynote speaker and took the stage to share her words of wisdom with the graduates.
“The fact that she gave the graduation speech to share her words of wisdom with the entire student body is the ultimate gift,” said Rose enthusiastically.
Rose isn’t just following her grandmother into the legal field — she’s also embarked on a career in entertainment.
Last year, the telegenic youngster landed an amazing role in her grandmother’s new TV series, Judy Justice.
The program is being produced by Amazon Studios, with Rose serving as Sheindlin’s new legal clerk.
Rose, one of Sheindlin’s 13 grandchildren, was previously profiled by The Post.
The rising star comes from a showbiz background, having previously interned on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. She also has a degree in communications from the University of Southern California.
Meanwhile, Sheindlin told the Post about the moment she knew her granddaughter would be “perfect” for her new show.
“She’s articulate, good-looking, youthful… whatever you want in an employee [court] Program. She has never been afraid of the camera and feels more comfortable. She even disagreed with a decision I made and I said, ‘I can see your side of the equation,’ which is a big step for me.”
Rose has also gushed over her grandmother after writing an open letter to the 35mm queen last year, which was published in Good Housekeeping magazine.
“You saw qualities in me that I eventually discovered but might not have had without your care and constant guidance,” Rose wrote.
“They taught me that being independent and being meaningful and effective in your life builds confidence,” she cooed.
Judge Judy Sheindlin is the presiding judge on “Judy Justice,” which streams on Amazon Freevee. Sarah Rose is the legal trainee.
