The weekend of November 4-5, jam packed with campus tours, lectures, panel discussions, law reviews, receptions and—biggest of all—class dinners, broke attendance records, drawing nearly 700 people to campus and the Ritz-Carlton in Boston.
Celebrating classes ending in 1 and 6, reunion festivities began Friday afternoon with open classrooms; grads got to sit in on professors Mark Spiegel and George Brown’s civil procedure classes. Some attendees took a private tour of BC’s new McMullen Museum of Art, housed in the former residence of Boston’s Cardinal Archbishop, to view an exhibition of illuminated manuscripts that received raves in the national press.
In cooperation with BC Law’s Rappaport Center for Law and Public Policy, the reunion included a panel of leading experts on terrorism. Later, Walter Kelly ’68, who was featured in the Netflix mega-hit Making a Murderer, gave the keynote address at the Alumni Assembly.
Saturday began with a meeting of the Black Alumni Network followed by a panel on post-election predictions moderated by Tom Melville ’86 of WBUR. An intimate reception for Dean’s Council giving society members preceded reunion dinners that lasted well into the evening.
