Reunions

KU Law Reunion Weekend

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 with questions about alumni events.
