It’s A Family Affair for Oregon Law’s 2009 Reunions
This is the eighth in a series of stories highlighting Oregon Law alumni celebrating class reunions this fall
When Oregon Law’s faculty, staff, students, and alumni say the school is more like a family, well, sometimes they mean it literally.
This fall’s Class Reunions, taking place on the law school campus September 11-13, may feel more like family reunions to a number of first-year students and alumni.
The Class of 2012 will welcome five students this fall who have family members celebrating a reunion this year. In fact, Oregon Law is welcoming a total of thirteen first-year legacy students.
Assistant Dean and Director of Admissions Larry Seno said it’s often the reminiscing by family members that encourages younger generations to seek out Oregon Law for their own law school experience.
“When you hear our alumni talk about their experience in law school, they’re most often talking about the people with whom they shared the experience: their classmates, their professors. There are many stories shared, some funny, some more serious,” Seno remarked. “Oregon graduates recall their time in law school with a great deal of fondness. If you’re the daughter or son of an alumnus, you’ve probably heard these stories a lot, maybe even met some of these people in person. The enthusiasm is contagious. The deep friendships are obvious. Why not come to Oregon and have the same experience?”
The following students have relatives celebrating a reunion this fall:
- Connor Beckley, son of Kelly Robert Beckley ’74
- Zach Klonoski, son of Judge Ann Aiken ’79
- Justin Osborne, son of Judge Roxanne Osborne ’79
- John Roberts, nephew of Rohn Roberts ’79 (and son of Jack Roberts ’78)
- Eamon McCleery, son of Scott McCleery ’84
