BC Law Masthead


Alumni across the country recently voted to approve a bold new plan for alumni relations by a 4 to 1 margin. The Alumni Search Committee, formed this Spring as dictated by the new Constitution and By-laws for the Alumni Association to help “strike the match” in the formation of the first Board, has reviewed more than 200 nominations and submitted its recommendations. The new Board should be unveiled by June.
