On Saturday 26 October on the stairs of the Mitchell Building a group of Law alumni gathered for a very unique photograph. An image that would represent the many cohorts of Law graduates from the 1950s until present, to celebrate the Law School’s 130 year history.
We put a call out to all Law alumni to participate in a group photograph, aiming to have a student from each graduating class represented for as many years as we could gather. It was particularly fitting for the photograph to take place in the Mitchell Building as this was where the Law School first began. Some alumni recalled sitting their exams in the building.
It was a great opportunity for the many decades of alumni to come together. There was a wonderful array of careers and contributions within the group which included leaders in the public, private and community sectors. Among the guests were judicial officers, parliamentarians and academics.
The Hon Bob Fisher QC who graduated in 1950 and is now 92 years young was the earliest graduate represented on the day. This was contrasted with recent graduates from the last few years who are just beginning their careers. The Law School’s long serving staff members were also represented with Professor Horst Lucke, Dr John Keeler and current Dean of the Law School Professor John Williams in attendance.
