Alumni Reunion and Events

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 robust schedule designed for law alumni, including Town Hall Meetings, Law School class dinners and receptions, Mass, and seminar sessions. Whether you visit the refreshment tent, participate in VIP tours, or attend the all-university picnic, reunion weekend provides an opportunity to renew friendships and find out how Notre Dame Law School and campus have transformed since your last visit.

Frequently asked questions, schedule updates, and registration information is available on myNotreDame. Registration opens in February.

Reunion 2014: May29 – June 1, 2014

Reunion for law graduates of ’64, ’69, ’74 ‘79’, 84’, ’89, ’94, ’99, ’04, and ’09. There is the 50 year club for classes that graduated’30 -’63.

During Reunion 2014, law alumni gathered to share many memories of their time at Notre Dame Law School. The 1964 graduates had an especially strong showing, as they were even joined by a fellow classmate through skype during the special 50-Year Club Induction Breakfast. All reunion attendees had an opportunity to reconnect with classmates as they worshiped together at a special Mass at the St. Thomas More Chapel and shared dinners both Friday and Saturday in the beautiful Eck Commons area in the law school. Law alumni had a chance to attend numerous seminars on campus including, “Being Atticus Finch”, the popular presentation by Fr. David Link and hosted by the law school. This year, the law school was very proud as one of its alumi, Richard A. Nussbaum II, ’74, ’77 J.D., returned to campus to receive the Rev. Edward Fredrick Sorin, C.S.C Award from the Alumni Association in recognition of his years of service and dedication to the University of Notre Dame. Thank you to all alumni who traveled back to campus to celebrate their law reunion. We look forward to Reunion 2015! See more awesome Reunion 2014 photos.

Lorelie Masters, ’81 J.D., Featured in 2015 Super Lawyers Magazine

lorelie_masters

Lorelie Masters was featured on the cover of 2015 Super Lawyers of Washington, D.C., in an article titled “Masters of the Insurance Universe.” Masters, a partner at Perkins Coie, is known as an expert in the field of insurance litigation, an area that she has practiced in since the mid- 1980s. In addition to the hours devoted to her successful practice, Masters spends after hours in her role as a social activist: advocating for pay equity for women, human-trafficking laws, voting rights and other issues. This past year Masters declared her candidacy to become the first elected attorney general in the District simply because “the race … needed to include women’s voices.”
