2002 SOCIOLOGY GRAD PAUL BAUER TO SPEAK AT 2012 COMMENCEMENT
In following with the tradition set forth by the sociology department of having past graduates speak at commencement, we are proud to have Paul Bauer (BA, ’02) return to Boston to address the 2012 graduating class of seniors. Paul graduated double major in SO and PS, magna cum laude. He will pass on his wisdom as a BU grad to the students, as well as relate his experience in the real world to what he learned within our department.
A brief bio on our guest speaker:
After graduation he moved to Washington where he served on the staff of U.S. Representative Robert Andrews (NJ), advising the Congressman on policy issues ranging from education and foreign affairs to labor and trade. Thereafter he went on to law school at the University of Chicago, and currently he is on staff at a major law firm in Manhattan (Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler) where he specializes in commercial litigation matters ranging from securities litigation to intellectual property to white collar defense. He also does important pro bono work on problems of human trafficking and juveniles seeking special immigrant status.
