Each year, alumni flock back to Lawrence for reunion festivities. KU Law hosts Homecoming events, including receptions and tailgating, for returning alums. It’s a great chance to catch up with former classmates and professors, explore campus, and of course, cheer on the Jayhawks! Beyond Homecoming, classes sometimes organize separate reunion events or weekends, often based around a significant anniversary. Below, you’ll find a list of reunion events for the current year, including information about tickets, accommodations, and parking. Please contact Noelle Uhler, the director of external relations, with any questions about upcoming alumni events.
KU Law Reunion Weekend | #kulawreunion
KU Law Reunion Weekend is fast approaching! We hope you will make plans to join your law school classmates during Homecoming weekend — Oct. 4-5, 2013 — in Lawrence, where the Jayhawks will take on Texas Tech. This year's reunion honors the classes of 1973, 1983, 1988, 1993 and 2003. Please come enjoy the fall foliage, a host of activities and the chance to catch up with law school classmates and professors. Many classes plan additional events for the weekend, and if your class would like to plan additional activities, contact Noelle Uhler at firstname.lastname@example.org for help arranging events.
