Annual Founders Day Dinner
The BYU Law School will host its annual Founders Day Dinner at the Grand America Hotel
in Salt Lake City on Thursday, August 27, 2009, in celebration of the establishment of BYU’s J. Reuben Clark Law School in 1973.
This year’s speaker will be the Honorable Dale A. Kimball
, a federal judge in the United States District Court for the District of Utah, who served on the faculty of the law school from 1973 until 1979.
“Judge Kimball is a very witty speaker, and his stories from the early years will add to the legacy we inherit when we are connected to the law school,” said Mary Hoagland, Assistant Dean of Career Services and External Relations.
Law school faculty, students, alumni, and friends of the law school always enjoythe food and atmosphere of the celebration.
“[Founders Day] is one of the highlights of our year,” BYU Law School graduate Kulaniakea Fisher (’03) and his wife Cindy said. “We never miss it.”
“BYU Law School does a very good job of bringing you into the circle and giving you a big hug,” they continued. “In a way, [it] is about remembering the old-timers; the ones who started the school; the fathers… they retell stories that make you somehow feel a part of something bigger.”
Interested alumni and sponsors may register here
. Students may register in the Accounting Office at JRCB Room 368.
The Law School will hold a reception at 6pm, and the dinner will begin at 7pm. The address of the Grand America Hotel is 555 South Main Street in Salt Lake City. Parking will be available on-site.
