Alumni Reunions
April 13, 2013 Reunion 
 
Each year, the School of Law hosts a reunion for all alumni, family and their friends. While alumni from all classes are invited, a special effort is made to build the turnout of those classes celebrating multiples of five years since their graduation. Members of those classes are urged to host reunion eve socials or morning after brunches at their firms, homes or favorite restaurants. The Office of Alumni Relations helps publicize these events.

Reunion costs are kept low to maximize turnout. The Reunions are sponsored by the DC School of Law Foundation, which allows all funds received for the Reunion to support Summer Public Interest Fellowships.
 
Supporting Alumni Small and Solo Law Firms 
 
This year, two alumni-related meetings were held immediately prior to the reunion.  The first of these was a conversation on what the School of Law could do to help small and solo alumni law firms in the Washington area become more sustainable - which could, in turn, lead to more hiring of students and recent graduates, plus the provision of additional much-needed legal service to low and moderate-income clients.   Approximately 20 alumni attended spanning all generations, from the Antioch School of Law through members of the Class of 2012.
 
TED-style Mini-Symposium 
 
The second meeting was our first TED-style Mini-Symposium featuring brief presentations from both alumni and School of Law faculty.  Presenters were, in order, Prof. Edgar Cahn; Hon. Steve Milliken, ’78; Kateri Gasper, ’83; John Iweanoge, ’93; Prof.. Charles Jeane, ’08; Prof. Andrew Ferguson; Prof LaShanda Taylor and Prof. Kristina Campbell.   The talks were well-received by the 30-40 alumni and students who attended.  To view these presentations please go to Alumni Symposium.
 
The Reunion Party
 
After the Symposium alumni filtered toward the reception area joining with many more of their classmates who came to party!  The Class of 1983 had the largest group, followed by 2008.  '78, '88, '93, '98 and '03 each had a nucleus of classmates - enough to make the evening enjoyable.  Music was provided by the David Rabin String Quartet and food by Green Plate Catering.   
 
Next Year
 
Reunions can be hilarious and heartwarming experiences that can rekindle old friendships and forge strong bonds between former acquaintances.
 
Or, frankly, if no one you like or connect with attends, reunions can be boring and alienating wastes of time and money.
 
The good new is that you can make a huge difference. The way to guarantee the quality of your reunion is to take personal responsibility: make a commitment to attend early, invite your friends, and offer to host a pre or post reunion event. The Office of Alumni Relations can provide you with your class list, or just the contact information of a few friends. Contact them and urge them to commit to attend. Once the "bandwagon” gets rolling, it’s fun and easy!
