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.
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 in February 2011 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.

“I always say, it was the BEST thing that I got out of law school!! I met my husband on the very first day of law school. We got married on November 14, 1995. We started out as very good friends, then best friends and ultimately . . . . Well, you know how it ends. We will be celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary this year.”

“We got married in August of 1992. We knew each other in our first two years of law school, but got to know each other third year--first sitting next to each other in Corporations with Professor Pinto, then we were "co-teachers" in the Street Law clinical program (which my husband got the Law School to try). We taught a "street law program" to HS seniors in Brooklyn and were dating by the end of the semester of 1991, before graduation. We'll be married 18 years this summer and we also have a 14-year-old daughter and 16-year-old son—at least one of whom says she wants to be a lawyer!”
