Final deadline is tomorrow (9/18) to submit updates for our class e-book

Participating in our class book is a wonderful way to reconnect with each other and celebrate our life experiences, even if you cannot attend in person.

Share your memories, passions, and life journey since our graduation 45 years ago.
Everyone in our class will be emailed a copy of our e-book prior to Reunion Weekend to make our Reunion more meaningful.
Bonus: If you attend our Reunion or submit a profile entry for the class book, you will receive a printed version too!

Honor the spirit of our deceased classmates by tomorrow (9/18)

Please send us your memories of our deceased classmates to include in our class book by September 18. We have not received any yet.

*Nonnie Burnes technically graduated in 1978 (she extended her studies because she had a baby), but we consider her very much a part of our Class of 1977. Sadly, Nonnie passed away in 2021 of kidney cancer. Please send us your memories of Nonnie and the other classmates who left this earth much too early. 

Help us reach our Reunion goal

In honor of our 45th anniversary, our class committee has set a philanthropic goal to raise $250,000 for the Class of 1977 Fund for Public Interest.

We believe we can achieve our goal with your support!

Many of us were drawn to NUSL because of its commitment to public interest and the unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience advancing the public interest through its innovative co-op program.

Fast forward five decades later—NUSL is renowned as one of the top public interest law schools in the country.

Please join us in leaving a legacy to NUSL and its future students. We can do it if we all pull together.

Multi-year pledges count towards the fund, and you can learn of creative ways to combine your philanthropic, estate, and retirement goals at a September 28th estate planning seminar (details below).
Please make sure to let Mielle Marquis, Director of External Relations,  know that you will participate in the gift or made a gift. 

Retirement Planning, Tax Savings for Your Estate, and Philanthropy

NUSL and Northeastern’s Office of Gift Planning are pleased to offer a free virtual information session for NUSL graduates on Retirement Planning, Tax Savings for Your Estate, and Philanthropy. Our featured speakers will be Brad Bedingfield and Nancy Dempze of Hemenway & Barnes LLP

Date: Wednesday, September 28, 2022
Time: Noon to 1:00 p.m. EST
Format: Virtual 

Whether you are thinking about retirement, approaching it, or enjoying it right now, you will find this information useful. Plus, you will learn about life-income vehicles, estate and bequest intentions, and the associated tax advantages of these planned gift arrangements. All healthy food for thought as you align your personal, financial, estate, and philanthropic goals.
