Cornell Law School Reunion 2009

Over 405 people attended Reunion 2009 with representatives from the class of 1940 to the most recent graduates from the class of 2009. The three-day weekend started with a reception at the A.D. White House, honoring the fiftieth reunion for the class of 1959 featuring wine-tasting courtesy of several local New York Finger Lakes wineries and concluded with an all class dinner dance where over 40 members of the class of 2009 joined the classes ending in 4's and 9's under the tent. Keynote speaker, the Honorable Stephen C. Robinson, AB '81, JD '84 discussed, "Returning to Ithaca 25 Years Later: My Own Personal Odyssey." In his talk, Judge Robinson discussed his founding principles, who he is, and what he cares about. His touching speech led to a standing ovation and inspired many in the audience. Reunion then concluded that evening with live music by the "The HotFoot Club" and plenty of dancing. You may view Judge Robinson's address in it’s entirety by clicking here.
