According to Boston College, the William J. Kenealy Alumnus of the Year Award honors a member of the alumni community who has “given of him/herself to benefit the Law School, its students and alumni.”

His litigation practice includes business and commercial lawsuits and representation of corporations and individuals in complex federal and state investigations and cases, as well as related civil and regulatory matters.
Prince’s long record of service and commitment to Boston College Law School made him a clear choice to receive this prestigious award.

Additionally, Prince is the vice president of the Ford Hall Forum at Suffolk University, a fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers, and serves on several boards, including the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce and One United Bank. He was recently appointed to the Boston Bar Association Task Force on the Superior Court Circuit System to review the structure and management of the Massachusetts courts.
Boston College’s Law Day was established in 1958 with a purpose to “celebrate the most important goals of the legal profession: to advance equality and justice, encourage observation and enforcement of the law, and to foster respect for law and an understanding of its essential place in the life of every citizen.”
