Class of 1962 Reunion
On May 4, members of the UBC Faculty of Law Class of 1962 returned to campus to celebrate their 50th reunion. For most of them, this was their first visit to Allard Hall, and they were thrilled to have tours guided by UBC Law Student Ambassadors. They were then joined by students from the current graduating class (Class of 2012) and members of the Faculty for lunch in the spectacular Forum at the heart of Allard Hall. The Class of 1962, including a number of prominent members of Canada and British Columbia's legal community, were very keen to include the graduates of the Class of 2012, as they hoped to share their knowledge and experience with the next generation of practitioners. Bringing the two classes together offered a tremendous opportunity to explore the changes that have taken in place in the practice of the law, to develop formative relationships between generations, to share lessons learned, and to look both backward and forwards at the same time. The Class of 1962 answered questions from the Class of 2012, offering bits of wisdom, practical remarks, and moments of levity. Many thanks to Marvin Storrow, QC, LLB, and his organizing committee, as well as to Blakes, for making this event a success.
