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.

“My husband and I did not meet at Brooklyn Law School. We meet at the University of Maryland in 1997. However, we decided to both attend Brooklyn Law School at the same time in 2000. We lived together in Brooklyn Law School housing on Clinton Street. We both graduated in 2003. We got engaged during spring break of our third year (2003) and got married the next year, with many Brooklyn Law School graduates in attendance. This summer we will celebrate our 6th year of marriage.”
