Boston College Law Generations

Family is a big word capable of encompassing many groupings: blood relatives, extended clans, communities of various sorts. Boston College Law School is a family, a singular society of men and women who’ve passed through the corridors on their way to lives as members of an even bigger family called lawyers. In the following pages, we put a face on this continuum by showcasing fathers, mothers, sons, daughters, siblings and cousins, six families with two or more members who graduated from or are currently enrolled at BC Law. They range from the Class of 1950 to the Class of 2005, and they are representative of the proud tradition of BC Law Generations.
