A Toast to the Class of 2020

Celebrating Class of 2020

On what would have been their commencement day, Albany Law School’s newest graduates gathered on Zoom to accept the community’s congratulations.

The May 15 celebration included a heartfelt video tribute from faculty and staff and remarks from Deans Alicia Ouellette and Rosemary Queenan, class president Kieran Murphy ’20, and Professor Patricia Reyhan, who was voted “Friend of the Class.” (At the outset of the COVID-19 outbreak, the Class of 2020 indicated that it would prefer a post-pandemic, in-person celebration rather than a virtual cap-and-gown ceremony.)

The following month, the law school held an end-of-year awards ceremony via Zoom.

Recipients, many of whom were from the graduating class, accepted their awards virtually from special guests—all trustees—Hon. Leslie Stein ’81, James Hacker ’84, Robert Capers ’96, and James Sandman, who was previously announced as the class’s commencement speaker.
