SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Faculty and staff at the Northern California law school where the U.S. ambassador to Libya earned his degree are mourning the loss of one of their prized students.

U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, three American diplomats and several Libyan security officers were killed in a brazen attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

Prof. David Levine says Stevens knew he wanted to join the foreign service when he was a student at the University of California Hastings College of the Law in the late 1980s.

Levine remembered Stevens as a bright student who spoke up in class and was well-liked.

The school issued a statement Wednesday saying that as a public servant, Stevens was performing the highest role a lawyer is called upon to perform.
