Alumni Reunion Weekend

Each year, the University of Arkansas School of Law, in conjunction with the Law Alumni Society, hosts Alumni Reunion Weekend. The event is a time for all alumni to come to campus and reunite as well as to make new friends and connections.

All law school alumni are invited to attend this fun weekend of reminiscing and reconnecting as we honor the graduates from 1959, 1969, 1979, 1989, 1999, 2009 and 2014.

Reunion registration fees have been kept low with the hope that our alumni will rise to the Class Challenge!

Scholarship is the single greatest tool we have to attract the best and brightest students to the School of Law. The class challenge is a friendly competition between classes to raise funds and to provide scholarships to qualified students who could not otherwise attend. Class totals will be tallied for “bragging rights” and each gift is tax deductible.

To give, please visit the link to contribute online. Or you may send a check made payable to the University of Arkansas Foundation. Please write “Class Challenge class XXXX” in the memo for proper credit. Checks may be mailed to:
