I always enjoy meeting BU Law alumni around the country and learning about their current careers and professional contributions to the legal field. It’s also a great opportunity for me to talk about our law school’s new programs, like the Transactional Law Program and Business Basics Boot Camp.
Last month, I travelled to New York City, Atlanta and Chicago to meet with our alumni. In New York, I attended a reception for Lois Herzeca (’79), a partner at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP who has just co-authored Fashion Law and Business: Brands & Retailers, a book that provides a comprehensive overview of the legal environment as it pertains to the fashion industry. The next day, I enjoyed the opportunity to meet with Shari Redstone (J.D. ’78, LL.M. ’81), vice chairman of Viacom and CBS Corp. who has recently started an early-stage investment firm, Advancit Capital.
I met many of our Midwestern alumni, including Christopher Freeman (’04) and Michael Rothstein (’87), while attending the BU Law alumni reception in Chicago last month.
