Summer 2020

Commencement Was Postponed, Congratulations Were Not

Boston College Law School’s 3Ls and LLM students should have gathered in Conte Forum on May 22 to receive their degrees on stage in front of faculty, family, and friends. The Covid-19 pandemic threw a wrench into those plans, as it did for many other graduates across the world. So BC Law stepped up to offer some virtual hugs and high fives.

The Law Student Association, with support from the BC Law administration, put together a celebration that ran the week of May 18 on the Class of 2020 Facebook group page, kicked off with a video from the faculty. Other events included a Facebook Watch Party screening of Legally Blonde, a virtual Trivia Night, a favorite memory photo contest, and messages and live video appearances from Dean Vincent Rougeau, the LSA president, and faculty and staff.
