WWII law alums to speak, May 9
As the 60th anniversary of the D-Day invasion approaches in June, Emory law alumni who are World War II veterans will share their experiences through a film and panel
discussion at 4 p.m., Sunday, May 9, at Miller Ward Alumni House.

Featured will be a film created from videotaped interviews of WWII veterans who are members of the Emory law classes of 1947–51. Panelists will include some of the lawyers and jurists who were interviewed for the film and as part of an oral history project at the law school that has chronicled the lives and war experiences of Emory law veterans.

The project has inspired a group of law alumni to make an anniversary visit to England and Normandy, returning to sites critical to the D-Day invasion; the group is scheduled to leave May 11 for a 10-day trip.

Admission to the May 9 event is free. For more information, call 404-727-6857.
