Amsterdam Law School hosts Summer Program reunion

10 July 2013

This summer sees the 50th anniversary of the Leyden-Amsterdam-Columbia Summer Program in American Law; a cause for celebration and a fine opportunity for alumni to get together with old classmates from all over the world. Over 150 alumni and professors attended the Summer Program reunion on 28 June 2013, hosted by the Amsterdam Law School.

Over the past two years, the organizing committee has taken great pains to locate and contact alumni. On the joyful Friday in June, reunion guests were warmly welcomed by the deans of the Amsterdam, Columbia and Leiden Law Schools, as well as by Prof. Robert Smit of the Columbia Summer Program. The day offered a carefully selected programme, including a debate on gene patenting, presentations at law firm Loyens & Loeff, a floating reception on the Amsterdam canals and a reunion dinner party at the Amsterdam Maritime Museum.
