150th Anniversary Gala
In October 1872, sixty students joined the inaugural class at Boston University School of Law. The school swiftly earned its place at the forefront of legal education, pioneering advancements such as the sequenced, 3-year curriculum that is now the common standard for legal education in the United States. Today, BU Law is recognized among the top US law schools, with 25,000 alumni living in all fifty states and more than 100 countries around the world.
Over the past 150 years, BU Law’s faculty and alumni have made a profound impact. They have argued some of the nation’s most consequential cases. They have advanced the cause of civil rights and equal justice for all people. They have fueled innovation in industries from mass media to technology to healthcare. They have fundamentally reshaped our nation’s understanding of the law and, in some cases, literally changed the course of history.
This fall, we will kick off a yearlong celebration of our sesquicentennial with an anniversary gala, coming together as one BU Law community to honor the school’s legacy and envision its future.
The law school is offering 100 free tickets to students who sign up to participate in a lottery. Students will be selected at random from those who sign up. The lottery will open on Friday, September 9 at noon and remain open until Monday, September 12 at noon. Students will be notified if they will receive a ticket to the gala by the end of the day on Wednesday, September 14.
Please note that each student selected by lottery will receive an individual ticket, which is not transferable. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
