On April 27-29, NYU Law graduates of 10 classes from 1968 to 2013 gathered at the Law School to celebrate Reunion 2018. The weekend’s program included alumni association receptions, class dinners, and an all-reunion dance, as well as walking tours and a reunion-class family brunch.
Alumni also had the opportunity to get a taste of their student days by attending classes with current Law School professors: Lily Batchelder, Frederick I. and Grace Stokes Professor of Law, on Tax; Professor Richard Brooks on Race in the Law; Richard Epstein, Laurence A. Tisch Professor of Law, on Constitutional Law; and Stephen Gillers ’68, Elihu Root Professor of Law, on Ethics.
Five alumni received awards from the Law Alumni Association honoring their professional achievements since graduating from the Law School:
- Matthew Johnson ’93, president of the Los Angeles Police Commission and managing partner at Ziffren Brittanham, received the Distinguished Alumni Achievement Award, which recognizes graduates’ professional achievements and commitment to the continued development of the Law School.
- Judge Dennis Jacobs ’73, of the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, received the Public Service Award, which honors alumni who have profoundly affected society through their careers in the public service.
