On April 27 and 28, graduates from the several incarnations of the School of Law came out to celebrate and reunite. All told, well over 100 alumni from the Antioch School of Law, the DC School of Law, and those who attended the UDC David A. Clarke School of Law joined in conversation, remembrance, networking and merriment.

On Friday, following the lead of Stephanie D'Angelo and her Class of 2007, nearly 60 alumni descended upon the Ireland's Four Fields pub in Cleveland Park. Joined by Professors John Brittain, Tom Mack and Dean Broderick, they connected, re-connected and carried on. The conversation was periodically punctuated by peals of "OMGs!" as familiar faces were spotted.

1982 in the StairwellThe next day, a dozen or so alums came out for an unhurried afternoon chat while the evenings reception was organized around them. By six, the band and food had arrived, the bar was open, and the numbers of alumni swelled. Leading the charge was the Antioch School of Law Class of 1982 with 20 or so graduates coming in from up and down the Eastern seaboard and as far away as Minnesota and California to celebrate their 30th. Next in line was the small but intrepid DC School of Law Class of 1992, celebrating their 20th, with a dozen or more classmates coming together for the first time in many a year. The Class of 1997 had another dozen, as did the Class of 2007. The Classes of 2002, 1987 and 1977 each had five or more alums present and several alums from other classes also joined in the fun.

Classical music by the David Rabin Quartet and food by Green Plate Catering were both devoured - the later possibly because fifteen or so non-registered alums appeared, hungry both for reconnection and supper! Green Plate's principal, our caterer, Kit Wood, was ably assisted in part by legal eagle Tom Devine, '80, himself a principal architect of modern whistleblower law from his perch as Legal Director of the Government Accountability Project, still the School of Law's only external credit-bearing clinic.

The Saturday night dinner party was held in the School of Law's high-ceilinged and elegant but apparently insufficiently spacious lobby and first floor conference room. As a result of our unexpectedly large numbers, roving parties of alumni prowled the hallways, borrowing chairs and setting up freestyle furniture groupings. Dan Manville, '82, took the initiative and led one of the major forays for additional chairs. One group from the Class of 1982 - easily mistaken for an accomplished acapella singing group - set up camp in one of the stairwells.
