2012 LL.M. Reunion

Friday, August 24th, and Saturday, August 25th, the School of Law held the first annual LL.M. in Agricultural & Food Law Alumni Reunion.

We are delighted that our event coincides with the Fayetteville Roots Festival, a music, local food, and cultural festival showcasing Fayetteville and the surrounding region. Check out their website for some of the featured events and more details. It will provide you with a great opportunity to reconnect not only to old friends, but to the diverse and entertaining “Dickson Street” culture that you probably remember well.

Of course, some of us have been around long enough to have seen a lot of changes on Dickson Street. Check out this photo album that shows Dickson Street in 1976 (several years before the LL.M. Program began) and now in 2012. It is a fun look at the history of our little street!

Cost

There will be a $25 per person charge for the CLE and reception, and you can pay at the door. We are not holding a group dinner, as we have heard that a number of you want to catch a show on Dickson Street or have a more intimate gathering with your particular class. We hope that members of each class will spread the word and encourage each other to make it back for the reunion.

Restaurants: Enjoy Fayetteville’s thriving local food scene by visiting one of the many eateries listed on the new NWA Local food Guide, or search for your old favorites on the Fayetteville tourism site.

RSVP

Please RSVP to Sarah Hiatt at sxh090@uark.edu if you will be attending. We will need an approximate number expected so we can plan for our room size and food and beverage needs.

Saturday, August 25

On Saturday, everyone is invited to the Fayetteville Farmers Market on the Fayetteville Square. It will be a special market, with combined activities with the Fayetteville Roots Festival.
