Contracts and Bagels

The Annual Parents Brunch —which brings students and their parents together on campus for mock classes, tours, and a chance to meet informally with Dean Rudenstine, faculty, and members of the administration — is always one of the Law School’s most popular events. An overflow crowd included Jenny Neslin ’07 and her father, Scott.
