It’s official: Senator Scott Brown will be the speaker at this year’s Commencement ceremonies on May 28. In an email to the student body, Dean Garvey announced that Brown ‘85 had accepted the school’s invitation to speak, referencing an official release the school would send out on Thursday. Brown is also committed to speak at the commencement ceremonies at Nichols College in Dudley, MA.
Brown will be the third conservative Commencement speaker in a row, a trait that has not escaped students’ attention. Said one 3L, “while Brown is definitely a legitimate speaker, it’s disappointing that for three years in a row, the commencement speaker will be right of center. It would have been nice to have someone more moderate, someone more in touch with the student body’s political beliefs.”
Brown’s student experience at BCLS was somewhat unusual.Read more
Sadly my fellow BC Law students, the likelihood of Scott Brown being our commencement speaker is pretty low. Clearly, I do not base this on anything Garvey has said. The man knows how to duck direct questions like a champ. I base this on the fact that Brown is going to be too busy playing basketball in the balmy D.C. spring weather, right after he finishes reconciling the books on his new business DateMyDaughters.com. As for John Kerry, not only would he be a repeat offender, but he presumably will be too busy playing golf on Nantucket by that point, so he’s out.
To throw Garvey a bone, I’ve taken to the streets to compile the people’s choice. Below are some suggestions from the more enlightened members of the Class of 2010 (and others I thought might be amusing. Turns out I was wrong). At worst, this list shows just unfunny and uncreative you are by the time you’re a second semester 3L….This also might be the last time I go outside my weird little brain for content.Read more
NEWTON, MA — Federal Reserve System Chairman Ben S. Bernanke has accepted Boston College Law School’s invitation to speak at the 2009 Law School Commencement, to be held on May 22, 2009.
While no formal announcement has yet been made by Boston College Law School, Eagleionline.com has confirmed the commencement speaker’s identity after weeks of speculation.
“The timeliness for Chairman Bernanke is uncanny,” said Boston College Law School alumnus Dan Roth ‘04, echoing the positive sentiments of much of the greater Boston College Law School community of students, faculty and alumni.
Bernanke has had a long and distinguished career as an academic economist, unlike his two immediate predecessors at the Fed, Alan Greenspan and Paul Volcker, who had distinguished careers on Wall Street as a bond trader and banker at Chase Manhattan, respectively.Read more
