Almost 100 alumni and their guests joined us for a fantastic reception hosted by the Lord Low of Dalston CBE, held in the Peers’ Dining Room of the House of Lords. The event brought together alumni spanning eight decades of the School’s history.
On arrival, our guests were given a private tour of the Houses of Parliament, having the opportunity to visit both chambers and hear interesting stories from the ‘Mother of all Parliaments’. A wine reception then took place in the prestigious Peer’s Dining Room and a welcoming speech was delivered by Lord Low. He also spoke about his time as an academic in Leeds and the efforts that the School is now taking to engage with and support its alumni community.
Professor Alastair Mullis, Head of School, then gave an overview of the current work of the School, speaking about the School today and the importance of our alumni community Alumni, guests and staff from the School of Law enjoyed a selection of the finest canapés and reminisced long into the evening over our catalogue of finalist’s photographs.
