The Reunion Giving Report 2018

As I reflect on the 2018 Boston College Law School Reunion weekend and the opportunity to celebrate my fiftieth reunion with friends, I feel an immense sense of pride in BC Law.

Throughout the two-day program, I experienced moments of joy reconnecting with classmates I had not seen in many years. I also took time to reflect on all that the Law School does to create positive change in the world.

52-55_BCWin19_E_ReunionGiving_01The sense of community is as strong today at BC Law as it was when I graduated in 1968. Professors are still engaging with students both in and outside of the classroom. The dedication of the faculty was on display during the celebration. I saw many alumni greet faculty members as they would their family members. The same sentiment existed fifty years ago.

Professionals from a variety of legal fields shared inspirational stories of challenges and triumphs throughout the weekend. I got to meet BC Law alumni currently practicing in top law firms. I met several graduates who are making a difference while working in public interest. There were also a few judges in attendance. Regardless of which path each graduate chose, the sentiment of “men and women for others” prevailed across all class years.

The formative education that a student receives at BC Law infuses their practice and fuels their passion. Graduates leave this school with a sense of purpose to provide justice for all. We are trained to think critically, write concisely, and give a voice to those who remain unheard. During the weekend, I felt great strength in the camaraderie of the Law School. I will, as I always have, carry this strength with me wherever I go.

As you will see while you review the 2018 Reunion Giving Report, I am not alone in my support of our community. Giving to BC Law ensures that students of this and future generations will continue to receive a world class legal education.

Thank you for your support.
