The weekend of November 3-4 was a heady outpouring of campus tours, lectures, panel discussions, “bar reviews,” receptions and—biggest of all—class dinners at the Fairmont Copley Boston.
Open to classes ending in 2 and 7, reunion began Friday afternoon with open classrooms; grads sat in on Professor Katharine Young’s contracts class and Professor Catharine Wells’ torts class. Some alumni took a private tour of BC’s McMullen Museum of Art to view Nature’s Mirror: Reality and Symbol in Belgian Landscape.
In cooperation with BC Law’s Rappaport Center for Law and Public Policy, the reunion included a panel discussion with Vera Sung ’90 and Chanterelle Sung ’04, whose family bank in Chinatown was targeted as “small enough to jail” by Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance Jr. At the Alumni Assembly, the Sungs gave the keynote on their family’s saga.
On Saturday, WBUR host Robin Young moderated a discussion among Congressman Michael Capuano ’77 and Professors George Brown and Renee Jones on the 2016 election. Afterwards, Professor Mary Bilder spoke at the Dean’s Council Reception, and the class dinners continued well into the night.
