Look below for a recap of the 2017 weekend, including pictures from the events.



The inaugural NDLS Homecoming Weekend was a huge hit as alumni from all over the country returned to the Law School to meet up with classmates. The highlight of the weekend was the Law School tailgate on Saturday prior to the football game, where close to 300 alumni reconnected as they enjoyed a craft beers, wine and a delicious buffet under a picture perfect fall day on the quad just east of Eck Hall.

On Friday of Homecoming Weekend, the NDLA Board conducted its fall meeting and hosted John Suthers, ’74 BA, current Mayor of Colorado Springs and former Colorado Attorney General and US Attorney for the District of Colorado. Suthers presented to the Board and current students on “The Attorney General’s Duty to Prosecute and Defend the Law – Not Their Personal Notion of Right and Wrong." Later that evening, the NDLA Board honored Suthers at dinner with the St. Thomas More Award in recognition of his outstanding career as a prosecutor, public servant, and loyal son of Notre Dame.
