Photos and Videos of Alumni Weekend 2008 Now Online

The return of former President Bill Clinton ’73—celebrating his 35th reunion—was among the highlights of Alumni Weekend 2008, held Friday, October 3, through Sunday, October 5, at Yale Law School. President Clinton spoke Saturday afternoon to several thousand enthusiastic Law School alumni, faculty, staff, and students at Woolsey Hall on the subject of “Our Global Challenges.” He said his experience at the Law School taught him a great respect for law and policy and evidence and argument, all of which are necessary, he said, “to turn good intentions into positive change.”

Streaming video and a podcast of President Clinton’s talk, along with photos and videos of many other Alumni Weekend 2008 events, are available on the Yale Law School Alumni website.

Watch the panel discussions that were held throughout the weekend, on such timely topics as the economy, liberty and national security, health care reform, immigration policy, and the environment. View Saturday’s presentation of the YLSA Award of Merit to Charles Reich ’52 and John Simon ’53, along with memorial tributes to influential civil rights lawyer Catherine Roraback ’48 and John Thomas Baker, the first black law professor at Yale Law School.

And be sure to check out the extensive photo galleries that capture many of the weekend’s exciting, thought-provoking and lighthearted moments—from Friday night's “Polling Game” hosted by Stanford Law Professor Pamela Karlan ’84, to Saturday’s Alumni-Student Breakfast Connections, to the various receptions, luncheons, and reunion dinners.
