Many things happened in 1988…  Calgary hosted the Winter Olympics. The National Gallery opened in Ottawa. Mulroney won a second majority and George H. W. Bush defeated Michael Dukakis in the US presidential race. Ben Johnson was stripped of his gold medal. Wayne Gretzky was traded to LA. Celine Dion won the Eurovision Song Contest. Adele and Rihanna were born, and Chet Baker and Roy Orbison died.  Oliver North was indicted for Iran-Contra. The Soviet army began its withdrawal from Afghanistan. Bill Vander Zalm was Premier.  The first computer worm distributed via the Internet was launched.  And the UBC Law Class of ’88, with its extensive legal talent, was launched into the world!

Join us in celebrating our 25th anniversary reunion on Friday, May 24, 2013 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm at the spectacular new UBC Law School building, Allard Hall. The reunion will feature drinks and appetizers, and tours of Allard Hall will be provided. Spouses and partners are welcome. Book your places by clicking here.

Additionally, arrangements have been made for an informal dinner at Athene’s Restaurant (3618 West Broadway) following the reception. Please RSVP for dinner to Catherine Sas at csas@millerthomson.com (cost is extra).

You may purchase your ticket for the reunion by clicking the button below. Please also consider making a donation to the Vincent Bjorndahl Bursary. This fund was established in memory of our much-loved classmate, who passed away in 2006 at the age of 43 after a courageous two year struggle with bone cancer. Vince is remembered for his positive outlook and love of people, his loyalty, integrity, his sense of adventure and love of life. The UBC Law Class of 1988 is proud to honour his memory with this bursary that will provide support to UBC Law students in financial need, helping them to continue their studies. Given this is our 25th year, we hope this event will raise $25,000 for the Bursary.

Thank you for your generosity, and we look forward to seeing you on May 24th.

Vincent Bjorndahl
