Emily Andrews ’07 was among more than 350 alumni and guests who returned to campus to enjoy a variety of events during the Law Reunion Weekend. “It was enjoyable to be able to gather with multiple generations of graduates so that the achievements of all could be celebrated and strived for at once,” Andrews said.
Events on Saturday began with a special Dean’s Circle breakfast, followed by a “Supreme Discussions” CLE presentation featuring three outstanding law professors who discussed the latest United States Supreme Court decisions. Panelists included Colleen Chien (intellectual property rulings), Pratheepan “Deep” Gulasekaram (immigration law), and Bradley Joondeph (health care reform). The session was moderated by Dean Donald Polden.
A Luau Luncheon honored alumni from the Class of 1962 and members of the Ruffo Society. Afternoon sessions included presentations by Philip L. Gregory ’80, “How to Avoid Being Victimized by Ponzi Schemes,” and Howard Peters ’78, “Chocolate—Food of the Gods.” In addition, Santa Clara Law reunion weekend September 8-9, 2012 attendees heard a report on the future of the law school from Dean Polden, along with Assistant Dean Trevin Hartwell.
Reunion volunteers joined the Dean for a champagne toast before the Alumni Reception and Reunion Dinners. “My 40-year reunion was the first I’ve ever attended,” said Bob Hales ’72. “It was wonderful to see so many classmates and to reminisce about our law school days. I’m already looking forward to our 45th!”
Fr. Goda offered a beautiful liturgy Sunday morning in the Jesuit Residence Chapel, and the weekend events concluded with a lively Jazz Brunch.
