Kevin Curtin Memorial Planned

The BC Law community is invited to attend a celebration of his life on October 8 at the Newton Campus.


When Kevin Curtin ’88, an alum with deep ties to BC Law, passed away last December, he was memorialized in BC Law Magazine by scores of people in the Law School community. On October 8, friends and colleagues will have a chance to remember him at a Covid-delayed gathering his family is calling “Kevin’s Celebration.”

The event will be held in Barat House on the BC Law Campus in Newton from 3 to 5 p.m. His wife, Susan Jeghelian, has extended the invitation to the entire community that all may have the opportunity to commemorate his life and his love for BC Law.

At the time of his passing, Curtin was senior appellate counsel/grand jury director for the Middlesex District Attorney. Over many years, he taught at BC Law, was president of the Alumni Board, and a participant in numerous on-campus events. As Professor Evangeline Sarda said of him: “His well of generosity and support on a personal level, and on a wider community level, for BC and for our profession, was endless, and his voice, his gaze, and his presence—you felt he was always right there with you.”

It was his way of carrying on a family legacy. The BC Law Curtin Center for Public Interest Law is named for his father, John “Jack” Jr. ’57, and mother, Mary Daly.

In accordance with Boston College guidelines, guests at the event are required to wear a mask when not eating or drinking. For parking, enter campus at 825 Centre Street, Newton Centre, and park in the lined spaces by Duchesne and the field hockey field. See link to campus map.
