2024 Alumni Reunion Weekend banner

Alumni Reunion Weekend

Each year, the University of Arkansas School of Law, in conjunction with the Law Alumni Society, hosts Alumni Reunion Weekend. Reunion provides the opportunity for members of our law school community to reconnect and return to campus.

This year, reunion promises to be even more special as we celebrate the law school turning 100! In addition to the reunion activities, we invite all alumni to join us on Saturday, April 13th for our Founder’s Day Celebration.

The 2024 Law Alumni Society Award recipients will be recognized at a special event Friday evening and graduates of class years ending in 4’s and 9’s are warmly invited to join classmates for a dinner to celebrate their milestone reunions on Saturday evening.

This is a unique moment in time to come together to renew ties with friends and celebrate our tight-knit community, which has always been and remains the hallmark of the School of Law educational experience.
