Over 750 alumni and guests returned to Cambridge on October 25-27 for our unique Reunion Weekend 2013, bringing together 12 Harvard Law School classes to celebrate with classmates and friends.
Reunion Weekend began with class visitations and tours of the new Wasserstein Hall, Caspersen Student Center, Clinical Wing building (WCC), followed by a thought-provoking talk by Professor Lawrence Lessig on “The Obligation of Citizens” and reflections and humor from Professor Alan Dershowitz on “A Half Century of Change — Mostly for the Better.” Saturday featured individual class symposia, an overview by Dean Martha Minow on the current state of the Law School and legal education in general, and the Dean’s spirited conversation with Lloyd C. Blankfein ’78, Chairman and CEO of The Goldman Sachs Group. The Saturday afternoon plenary session, “Law and National Security: Counterrorism and the Rule of Law,” offered perspectives from HLS faculty and alumni who are leaders in this field. On both days, alumni listened to wide-ranging panel discussions with HLS faculty and alumni leaders in law, public service, estate planning, entertainment, and business. Over the weekend, attendees also enjoyed receptions and class dinners, an autumn snack break in the new Law School Courtyard, class photos, a gathering of the 1817 Society, campus and cultural tours, and the opportunity to celebrate and reconnect with old friends.

It was wonderful to have so many alumni back on campus. If you were unable to join us, we hope to see you in Cambridge soon. It is not the same without you!
