African American Alumni Reunion
March 21 - 23, 2014

We are excited to invite you to the inaugural African American Alumni Reunion and the 36th Annual Alden J. “Butch” Carpenter Memorial Scholarship Fund Banquet, which will be held March 21-23, 2014. The alumni reunion planning committee and the Black Law Students’ Alliance (BLSA) are proud to jointly present this special weekend.  Your invitation materials are enclosed here.

Michigan Law is such an extraordinary place because of the sense of community that pervades the student body, as well as the lifelong affiliation that alumni feel for the Law School and for each other. Being able to bring students and alumni together to foster professional connections and to learn from each other will greatly benefit all who attend.

Another distinctive aspect of Michigan Law is our graduates’ desire to give back to the institution and to support today’s students. Therefore, it is fitting that the Butch Carpenter Banquet is the cornerstone of the alumni reunion weekend. One of the goals of the reunion is to improve and support recruitment and matriculation of African American students through outreach and mentoring; the reunion is a first step in this process. Your attendance will help demonstrate the solidarity of our community and our collective support of past, present, and future Michigan Law students.

Please plan to join us for the African American Alumni Reunion and the 36th Annual Alden J. “Butch” Carpenter Memorial Scholarship Fund Banquet. Your involvement is vital in making the weekend a success. On behalf of all BLSA members and the entire African American Alumni Reunion committee, we hope to see you in March.
