Alumni at Reunion

It was another fantastic turnout as over 500 alumni from years ending in 4 and 9 gathered at the law school on October 25 for the Faculty of Law reunion. The the Osler Atrium, Bora Laskin Law Library and Torys Hall were filled with a wonderful vibe as alumni reconnected with classmates at the pre-dinner cocktail reception. The largest turnout was from the newest alumni, as 70 members of the class of 2014 joined the party for their first reunion.

The event was also an opportunity for these classes to see the interior of the Jackman Law Building, inaugurated in 2016, and the renovations in historic Flavelle House that accompanied that project. Eleven student ambassadors were on hand to give tours to those who had not yet experienced the law school's new facilities.

Dean Iacobucci kept his remarks short, in order not to slow down the energy of the room. He welcomed everyone, expressed his delight at seeing "so many wonderful alumni coming together," and reminded his fellow alumni about the campaign to support student financial aid, which is wrapping up at the end of the year.

At the end of the reception, the alumni dispersed to their class dinners, all within walking distance of the Faculty of Law, carrying the spirit of the law school out to the city around it.
