Law School celebrates 80th anniversary

Marvin Arrington '67L, president of the Atlanta City Council and member of the Emory Board of Trustees, presents a proclamation to Dean Woody Hunter naming Sept. 25 "Emory University Law School Day" in the City of Atlanta. Sept. 25 marked the 80th anniversary of the first opening convocation for students at the law school. Faculty, students and alumni were on hand for a noontime celebration, complete with ice cream and cake, in the law school's Bacardi Plaza. Dean Hunter, who welcomed Arrington and other guests, noted that among the law school's first graduates were Eleonore Raoul and Harry Green, "who married and lived happily ever after for many years."
