Classes of 1985, 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005 and 2010
Spring Reunion 2015, bringing together the Harvard Law School Classes of 1985, 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005 and 2010, was truly memorable. Over 800 alumni and guests — the largest attendance ever for an HLS Reunion — returned to Cambridge on April 24-26 to celebrate with classmates and friends. During Reunion Weekend, alumni engaged in an exciting selection of lectures, panels, receptions, dinners and tours.
Friday began with class visitations and tours of the new Wasserstein Hall, Caspersen Student Center, Clinical Wing building (WCC), followed by a keynote presentation, Updates from the Berkman Center for Internet & Society and the Library: Scholarship on Digital Issues and Digital Issues for Scholarship, by Professor Jonathan Zittrain ’95. Saturday featured individual class symposia; a conversation with Dean Martha Minow on challenges and opportunities, past and present, at HLS; a keynote presentation by The Honorable Julián Castro ’00, U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, on Re-igniting the American Dream in the 21st Century; and a plenary session with Professor David Wilkins ’80, presenting Women and Men of Harvard Law School: Results from the Harvard Law School Career Study of the Classes of 1975, 1985, 1995 and 2000. (The newly published report is available here.)
Attendees also enjoyed class dinners, class photos, a gathering of the 1817 Society, and the opportunity to reconnect with old friends and enjoy the Law School’s new Courtyard. On both days, alumni listened to wide-ranging panel discussions featuring faculty, students and alumni leaders in business and finance, cyberlaw, career transitions, food law and policy, international human rights, public interest and much more.
