Law School alumni gather for reunion every five years; providing an opportunity to recall memories and make connections with classmates as well as Law School alumni from other classes.
Notre Dame Law School and the Alumni Association collaborate to provide a schedule designed for law alumni, including seminars across campus, Law School class dinners and reception, Mass, and Town Hall Meetings. Whether you visit the refreshment tent, participate in VIP tours, or attend the Law School class dinners, reunion weekend provides an opportunity to renew friendships and discover how Notre Dame Law School and campus have transformed since your last visit.
Reunion 2015: June 4th – June 7th, 2015
Reunion for law graduates of ’65, ’70, ’75, ’80, ’85, ’90, ’95, ’00, ’05, ’10. There is the 50 Year Club for classes that graduated ’50-’65.
During Reunion 2015, law alumni gathered to share many memories of their time at Notre Dame Law School. The class of 1975 led by their “fearless leader” Peter Shirk had a record turnout of close to 50 law grads. The alumni gathered for a lovely brunch on Saturday at the lake home of Jeanne Jourdan followed by a class Mass in the law chapel by Fr. Dave Link and a class dinner in the Law School.
The class of 1965 was reunited due to the efforts of Henry Boitel and enjoyed many laughs at the 50-Year Club Induction Breakfast at the Law School on Saturday morning where they received their special “gold hats”.
The class of 1985 reconnected at a wonderful picnic hosted at the home of Matt Barrett.
The class of 1990 also rallied the troops and had a nice showing for the Saturday events.
Fr. Beauchamp and Jeanne Jourdan
All reunion attendees had an opportunity to reconnect with classmates as they worshiped together at the Law School Mass celebrated by alum Fr. Bill Beauchamp on Friday and shared dinners both Friday and Saturday in the Law School’s beautiful Eck Commons. Law alumni had a chance to attend numerous seminars on campus including, "Being Atticus Finch", the popular presentation by Fr. Dave Link, and “Lost Classroom, Lost Community” presented by professors Nicole Garnett and Peg Brinig. Thank you to all alumni who traveled back to campus to celebrate their law reunion. We look forward to Reunion 2015! See all reunion photos here.

Dinner in NDLS Commons

Amelia Yowell, J.D. ’11, has been selected as the 2015-2016 Supreme Court Fellow assigned to the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts.
Paul Drey, the managing partner of Brick Gentry, P.C., was recently honored with the John F. Sanford Award during the Dinner Gala at the Iowa Medical Society’s (IMS) 165th Annual Conference. The John F. Sanford Award recognizes a layperson who has made outstanding contributions to health care on behalf of both the Iowa Medical Society and the physicians in the State of Iowa. The presenter of the award stated, “There is a reason Paul is the ‘go to’ attorney for medical groups and physicians in Iowa – he truly cares about Iowa physicians, and understands how complex our world can be.” The receipt of this award is further evidence of how Paul continues to exhibit the attributes of strong intellect, faith, and service that resulted in him being chosen as the inaugural Father Michael McCafferty Law Scholar at NDLS in 1992.
