Notre Dame London Law at 50

Fischerhallweb Fischer Hall, located near Trafalgar Square, is the home of Notre Dame’s London Global Gateway.

The Notre Dame London Law Program turns 50 years old in 2018. Join us to celebrate with a full year of events at Notre Dame’s London Global Gateway!

Conwayhallweb Conway Hall, located in the South Bank district next to the River Thames, is the London Global Gateway’s residence building.

The festivities kicked off in January with the first installment of a monthly speaker series and will culminate with a four-day celebration October 20-23. The culminating celebration will include tours of London landmarks, presentations by top legal scholars, evening entertainment, and plenty of fellowship with Notre Dame Law School alumni, friends, and students.

Since 1968, more than 1,500 students from Notre Dame Law School have studied in the London Law Program – deepening their understanding of the roots of American law, exploring international career opportunities, and forging lasting bonds with classmates.

It’s time to celebrate a program that has become an invaluable part of a Notre Dame legal education and provided formative experiences for generations of Notre Dame Lawyers.

Mark your calendars and make plans to join us for Notre Dame London Law at 50! Watch this space and follow #NDLondonLaw50 for all the latest updates.
