Alumni from the class of 1962 visit Birmingham Law School

Eight Law alumni from the class of 1962 visited campus in October for a special reunion and tour of the Law School, which they found to be much changed. The eight alumni were part of a cohort of just 30 students who arrived in Birmingham to study Law in 1959 (the Law school now takes over 400 students every year!).

The group were brought together by Dr Ronald Wong, a retired solicitor and former secretary of the Holdsworth Club. Now living in Hong Kong, he worked with the Alumni Relations office to reconnect with his old classmates and arrange the get-together. The group recalled that there were only four women in their year (three of whom took part in the reunion) – the proportions are now much more equal! Some of the alumni hadn’t seen each other in 50 years.

After meeting with the Holdsworth Club members and academic staff, the group enjoyed a thorough catch-up over lunch.
