Thank you for a successful Reunion Weekend 2016!
More than 480 alumni and friends traveled to Boston University School of Law for Reunion Weekend 2016, held the weekend of September 30. On Friday, alumni enjoyed an Open House at the Law School, showcasing the new Sumner M. Redstone Building and renovated law tower. Student guides were on hand to lead group tours, as well. Alumni were also welcomed to join the Miranda v. Arizona Conference, organized to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the landmark US Supreme Court case, before they reconnected with faculty and staff at an afternoon reception.
Later in the evening, alumni attended reunion class receptions throughout Boston, and BU Law welcomed the Class of 1966 into the Golden Circle Club with a reception and dinner at Palm Restaurant near Boston Harbor.
On Saturday, many alumni and their families participated in a tour of the Museum of Fine Arts as well as the group Duck Tour through Boston.
