In the Spring 2010 issue of LawNotes, we published a feature story entitled “Mergers & Acquisitions,” in which we shared six stories of BLS alumni who met at the Law School and married – one couple from every decade from the 1950s through the present day. The story was inspired by Joshua D. Kirshner ’04 and Amy Rozenfeld ’04, a couple who met and fell in love while at the Law School. Josh even enlisted the help of President Wexler in orchestrating his on-campus proposal to Amy!
In researching “Mergers & Acquisitions,” we discovered that hundreds of couples had met at BLS, and there are many more BLS alumni who met before or after law school. In fact, there are so many couples that we hosted a Valentine’s Day party last February to celebrate their love of the law…and each other.
We are delighted to present an ever-growing section of our Web site dedicated to couples who credit BLS as both their alma matter and their dating service. We received emails and letters from many couples who wrote in to tell us, in their own words, the story of their own “mergers and acquisitions.” We look forward to hearing from more couples, and welcome stories of all partnerships for inclusion on the site.

“My husband and I graduated in the class of 2007 and met at Brooklyn Law School where we both lived in school housing at 2 Pierrepont Street (I lived on the ninth floor and he lived on the seventh floor). We actually met on the first day of orientation at the mixer hosted by the school, remained friends and then started dating halfway through our second year of school. We also both work for the New York City Law Department. We were married on October 11, 2009 in Brooklyn Heights at the First Unitarian Congregational Society of Brooklyn on Pierrepont and Monroe Street. A few of my friends from Brooklyn Law School were also in our wedding party.”
