Alumni Weekend 2015
On September 19 & 20, more than 650 graduates of Berkeley Law came to the law school for an exciting Alumni Weekend. Some of the highlights included: Dean Choudhry’s State of the School address, outlined the four key pillars for Berkeley Law; hearing from three brilliant iconic figures in the legal world–our very own professors Jesse Choper and Bob Cole, plus Theodore Olson ‘65–about updates on the Supreme Court; witnessing the distinguished Jules Bonjour ‘66 honored at the Jensen Award Luncheon; reflecting on a 1968 Oakland Death Penalty Trial and its connections to what we face in this post-Ferguson era; participating in a walking tour of Berkeley Law which included “surprise” guests Professors Bob Berring, Richard Buxbaum, and Herma Hill Kay; and watching an inspiring video featuring a day in the life of a student.
