It was a well-organized event where everything was perfect except for one thing - among all the students, Hasan of LL.M. was not there in his farewell, because he was at a hospital fighting for his life.

I would like to end this report with an appeal for help. Md. Aminul Hasan, a student of the outgoing batch is suffering from blood cancer. Doctors have advised his family to take him abroad for better treatment, which his low-paid government employee father cannot afford. So he has appealed to generous people of the country to help carry on his treatment which involves about Tk 50 Lakh. Contributions can be sent to Savings Account No.-4397, Sonali Bank, Kurmitola Branch, Dhaka. Interested persons can also call his father at 01913575748.
