Photos, Videos of Alumni Weekend 2009 Now Online

Alumni Weekend 2009 featured the return of both an illustrious alumna and a beloved former dean.

Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor ’79, confirmed in August as the first Hispanic and third woman to serve on the Court, came back to campus for her 30th reunion and a conversation in Woolsey Hall with Yale Law School Professor Kate Stith. And Harold Hongju Koh, dean of the Law School from 2004 to 2009 and now Legal Adviser to the U.S. State Department, returned to accept the Yale Law School Association’s Award of Merit.

In addition to those highlights, Alumni Weekend 2009, held October 16-18, offered numerous opportunities to reflect on the theme of the weekend, “The Regulatory Debate: Whether, What, and How?” Panel discussions examining various facets of the debate—courts and regulation, the regulatory process, and regulation in health care, the economy, and the environment—will soon be available on video on the Yale Law School Alumni website.

Photos of many other Alumni Weekend 2009 events, including Justice Sotomayor’s talk, the award presentation to former dean Koh, a memorial tribute to Professor Thomas I. Emerson ’31, Friday night’s “Polling Game” hosted by Stanford Law Professor Pam Karlan ’84, and various receptions, luncheons, and reunion dinners are also available on the Alumni website.
