Northern California alumni celebrated the holidays at a chapter party at the San Francisco Four Season’s Hotel on December 12. This past summer the chapter sponsored two events. On June 27 northern California alumni, students, and recent graduates working in the Bay Area gathered for an annual summer happy hour mixer, at the Cigar Bar & Grill in downtown San Francisco. For the second summer in a row, northern California alumni mentored BC Law students working in the area to provide career guidance. Students were surveyed prior to their arrival for their current interests in the law, and were paired with alumni in that field.
