Golden Alumni Reunion 2019
I hope you can join us for lunch for the 2019 Golden Alumni Reunion on Wednesday 23 October.
The event will be a wonderful opportunity for law alumni who graduated 40 or more years ago to come together at the Old Quad. Partners are welcome to attend and I encourage you to organise a table with your classmates for this celebratory reunion.
October is also the centenary of Sir Zelman Cowen's birth: known to many of you as Dean of Melbourne Law School (1951 to 1966) and subsequently as Governor-General of Australia (1975 to 1980). We will be paying tribute to Sir Zelman at the reunion.
Should you have any photographs, anecdotes, memorabilia or artefacts relating to the Old Quad or Sir Zelman that you wish to share at the reunion, I encourage you to contact MLS Alumni Relations. Any items shared with us will, of course, be returned.
I look forward to seeing you at this very special reunion.
