100th Anniversary Celebration

The Harvard Legal Aid Bureau: A Century of Service

Mark your calendars for the Fall of 2013, when the Bureau will celebrate a Century of Service! On the weekend of November 8, 2013, the Harvard Legal Aid Bureau will be joined by Harvard Law School, partner organizations and many others in the Greater Boston Community for the Harvard Legal Aid Bureau: A Century of Service.

Since 1913, the Harvard Legal Aid Bureau has left an indelible mark on Harvard Law School and the surrounding community. As the oldest student-run legal services organization in the country, the Bureau has helped countless families and has been used as a model for other organizations. No matter when you worked at the Bureau, we hold in common our commitment to the Bureau its mission.

After a century of serving clients and the community alike, it is time for the Bureau Family to celebrate, reunite and plan for another successful one hundred years. If you are a Bureau alum and interested in joining the Century of Service Planning Committee, please email the Alumni Director, Uzezi Abugo, at alumni@harvardlegalaid.org.

For those who do not want to drink alcohol, but would still like to attend, there will be a ticket option that does not include the price of the open bar.
