The Fourteenth Annual Scholarship Dinner was held April 4 at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Boston. The elegant gathering brought some 100 donors and their student recipients together for a shared evening of celebration and appreciation.

Student John Marley ’21, recipient of the Eugene and Mary Carey Endowed Scholarship, gave a rousing speech, expressing his gratitude for the privilege of a legal education and for the opportunity to “analyze law deeply.” He said he hopes to carry BC Law values into the big law space.

Mostly, though, he gave a ringing acknowledgment of the donors whose resolve, he said, has unshackled aspirants from the debt that could deter them from seeking a legal education.

“You support people you don’t know, and you do it over and over again,” he marveled. “You’re heroes.”
