LSU Law Alumni Reconnect and "Pass a Good Time" at 2009 Reunions
Members of the Class of 1969 gathered at the Law Center on Friday, October 30 in the Tucker Room, now home to the civil law library collection of Colonel John H. Tucker, Jr. It was a good turn out, giving lots of old friends the opportunity to reconnect. Several expressed their joy at “being in the stacks for a party” instead of studying and preparing for class as they had done while in school some 40 years ago! Many classmates and guests took tours of the renovated Law Center facilities and expressed their pride in the physical plant and significant accomplishments of their classmates and the Law Center. “It’s still a powerhouse of legal talent,” said one 1969 LSU Law alum.

The Class of 1979 had great fun during its 30 year reunion as the large photo collage poster was passed around to members of the class! The reunion was held at the LSU Faculty Club on October 30. Classmates poked fun at the mustaches and sideburns sported by the guys, and the “big hair” styles worn by the female law students. One graduate liked the poster so much that his wife offered to buy it in order to show the kids back home! Always eager to please, the Alumni Office gave her the poster. It's now available for all to download from the photo gallery. Alums came from as far away as Puerto Rico to join in the celebration.
The Faculty Club was filled with alums of the Class of 1989 and their guests on Friday, November 13. Some 75 guests gathered for the reunion on the crisp fall evening. The lively group of alums posed for “class section photos,” re-kindling the true spirit of camaraderie with fellow classmates. One alum told of the experience of being called on by “a certain LSU Law faculty member,” concluding that the Socratic method made her, “all the better lawyer in hindsight.” As the evening waned, classmates stayed after the music faded, seeking one last opportunity to share a story with a fellow graduate. “We passed a good time,” said an alum from south Louisiana as he left the event—with two fellow grads in tow.
