Suffolk University Oral History Project (SOH-062)
Bernard (Bernie) Keenan, reflects on his 48 years at Suffolk University Law School, including his experiences as a faculty member and in administrative roles as associate dean, interim law school dean, and as interim provost. He describes his beginnings as a faculty member at the law school, his early mentors, the relationships he built over his years at the university, and his continued love of teaching. He reflects on the development and growth of the law school including two pivotal events: the move into the new building and achieving accreditation by the American Association of Law Schools. This leads to a discussion of the university’s overall development and his role as interim provost. He concludes with recollections of his transition back to the faculty, his committee assignments, important colleagues, significant aspects of his career at Suffolk, and his post-retirement plans.
