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.
