NUSL Newsbriefs November 2013

A Weekend to Remember!

Class was back in session for many alumni/ae who attended Reunion and Alumni/ae Weekend in October. The weekend featured an impressive roster of events, including panel discussions featuring notable alumni/ae and faculty, cultural and campus tours, a "book club," and a festive dinner. Hundreds of alumni/ae had the chance to celebrate with fellow classmates and reminisce about their time at the School of Law. To those of you who joined us on campus, thank you. We are inspired by your enthusiasm and commitment to NUSL.
