Alumni Weekend 2010
Saturday morning kicked off with a matching breakfast, where almost 140 students and alumni were paired after completing surveys about their career and non-career interests. At the All Alumni Luncheon on Saturday, the Yale Law School Association's Award of Merit was given to four members of the Class of 1969 who have been environmental leaders throughout their careers and were instrumental in the founding of the Natural Resources Defense Council: Richard Ayres ’69, John Bryson ’69, James Gustave Speth ’69, and Edward Strohbehn Jr. ’69. Fittingly, alums had a chance to tour Kroon Hall after the tour, the new home of the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies which has LEED platinum certification.
Throughout the weekend individual classes had special activities ranging from memorials to remember class members, to panel discussions, to a volunteer project painting light posts on the New Haven Green. On Saturday night and Sunday morning, reunion classes were spread out around town for their festive class reunion dinners and brunches. The picture perfect weather provided a great backdrop for events throughout the weekend.
For those of you who want to remember the Weekend, and for those who were unable to attend and want to get a sense of what occurred, please take a look at the terrific photo gallery and streaming videos: www.law.yale.edu/alumni/aw10media.htm.
We look forward to welcoming all graduates to Alumni Weekend 2011 on November 4-6. Please mark your calendars now! It isn’t too early to make your plans.
