Alumni Turn Out For National Events, Look For Philadelphia Reschedule Soon

Note: The Goizueta Business and Emory Law Schools reception with Dean Robert Schapiro scheduled for Oct. 30 was canceled due to the impact of Hurricane Sandy. Look for a rescheduled date early in 2013. Our thoughts are with our alumni during recovery from the storm.

Here is a round up from other stops on the dean’s tour this fall: 

Dean Schapiro was warmly received in the Longhorn state where he met with alumni and parents of current students in both Houston and Dallas on Oct. 15 and 16. Emory Law graduates appreciated Schapiro’s recognition of the strong legal market in Texas. 

In the Empire State, the first annual New York City Dooley’s Ball on Oct. 17 was a sell-out, with more than 500 attendees. Emory Law alumni danced the night away at the Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers, with Grammy-award winning Emory alumnae The Indigo Girls (Amy Ray 86C and Emily Saliers 85C). Key law alumni sponsors included Phil Reese 66C 76MBA 76LRichard Chassin 84L, and Lee Miller 82L.

As a native New Yorker, Dean Schapiro was thrilled to see such a tremendous turnout for an Emory event in the Big Apple. After Atlanta, New York has the largest concentration of Emory Law graduates.

Emory Law’s Washington, D.C., alumni were invited to Schapiro’s Oct. 24 panel talk on understanding healthcare reform with Kenneth Thorpe, Robert W. Woodruff Professor and chair of the Department of Health Policy & Management at Rollins School of Public Health. Alumnae panelists were Sally Tyler, a senior health policy analyst with the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees, and Julie Clements 02C, deputy director of Regulatory Affairs at the American Psychiatric Association.
