By Ashleigh Wilson September 18, 2023

On August 26, 2023, members of BYU Law’s Charter Class returned to campus, almost 50 years to the day of when they began their studies and helped to found the J. Reuben Clark Law School. The group celebrated by sharing memories with friends, former faculty, and classmates. This commemorative gathering and dinner was part of BYU Law’s 50th anniversary celebration. 

Professor Cliff Fleming, faculty at BYU Law since 1974, spoke at the event, which also included honored attendees and former BYU Law Deans, Elder Bruce C. Hafen and H. Reese Hansen. In all, more than 80 charter class members and their guests attended to reminisce about their first years at the Law School and share memories of the events, growth, and changes since they were classmates at “St. Reubens.”
