Boston College Law School celebrated the opening of its new Center for Experiential Learning on Friday, October 17, part of the school’s Reunion Weekend 2014. The event was highlighted by an address from Carmen Ortiz, US Attorney for the District of Massachusetts.

The Center for Experiential Learning brings BC Law’s experiential learning programs under one roof−and speaks to BC Law’s commitment to giving all students real-world opportunities while enriching the experiences of clients of the legal services LAB.

The schedule began with an open house from 3:30-4:45 pm, where BC Law Center faculty and students were available throughout the facility “to answer questions and discuss the most exciting projects and cases the Center is working on now–as well as the real impact these cases have on their clients,” said BC Law’s Faculty Director of Experiential Learning, Paul Tremblay.

The open house was followed by US Attorney Ortiz’s address in the law school’s Stuart 411 classroom. The speech opened the annual Alumni Assembly meeting. There was a reception for the Center immediately following the meeting in the entrance to the Smith Wing.

This was a Reunion Year for classes ending with a “4” or a “9”. For a full photo slideshow from all Reunion events, please visit the Reunion website.
