Classes of 1986, 1991, 1996, 2001, 2006 and 2011
Spring Reunion 2016, bringing together the Harvard Law School classes of 1986, 1991, 1996, 2001, 2006, and 2011, was truly memorable. Nearly 1,000 alumni and guests — a record-breaking number for Reunion Weekend — returned to Cambridge on April 8-10 to celebrate with classmates and friends.
Throughout the weekend, alumni engaged in an exciting selection of lectures, panels, receptions, and dinners. Friday began with class visitations and tours of the Wasserstein Hall, Caspersen Student Center, Clinical Wing building (WCC). That night, alumni attended cocktail receptions before the evening celebration at the WCC.
Saturday featured a conversation with Dean Martha Minow, who shared updates on faculty, students, and alumni, the places they’re making an impact, and pressing issues at HLS today. At lunch, Professor Jonathan L. Zittrain ’95 gave a dynamic update on “Highlights from the Berkman Center for Internet & Society and the Library: Scholarship on Digital Issues and Digital Issues for Scholarship.” In the afternoon, alumni participated in individual class symposia and a plenary session on technology, privacy, and the law moderated by Clinical Professor Christopher T. Bavitz, Managing Director of the Cyberlaw Clinic. The day came to a close with cocktail receptions and class dinners at the Charles Hotel.
Both days included wide-ranging discussions featuring faculty, students, and alumni on topics that included business and finance, career transitions, international human rights, public interest law, technology, entrepreneurship, and much more. Alumni also enjoyed class photos, tours of Harvard and Boston, a gathering of the 1817 Society, a farewell brunch, and of course, opportunities to catch up with old friends and make new connections.
