By happy electoral coincidence, three members of the BC Law community are currently serving together on the executive committee of the Association of American Law Schools. Mid-term member Avi Soifer, left, who was BC Law’s dean from 1993 to 1998 before assuming that role at the University of Hawaii, was joined by current dean Vincent Rougeau and University of Michigan law professor Alicia Alvarez ’85, when they were elected to three-year terms in 2016. After a meeting last fall, they compared notes on their experiences at the Law School. “It’s special to be working with these fine exemplars of our community to address the many challenges and opportunities confronting American legal education,” said Rougeau.
