What if my graduating class isn’t celebrating a Reunion?

The Law School welcomes back all alumni to campus for Reunion Weekend. Many activities are not class specific, including the Loop Luncheon, All-Alumni Wine Mess, and faculty presentations.

How do I register?

Registration will open in the spring of 2024. Registration costs for all events will be available at that time. Stay tuned!

Can I attend if I do not pre-register?

We can accept walk-in attendees if space is still available, but advance registration is highly encouraged. Registering before the deadline helps us to better accommodate you, reserves your space, and gives us a more accurate idea of how many meals to order.

Please note: any special meal requests must be made before the final registration deadline. Our ability to honor on-site special requests is very limited.

Can I bring my family?

Alumni are encouraged to bring family and friends to celebrate the weekend together. Children are welcome to attend Saturday activities at the Law School. The Picnic Lunch will include games and activities.

All other events are recommended for adults only. Please email with any questions.

Are there childcare options available?

If you are bringing your family for a weekend of fun in Chicago, childcare services are available from a number of local providers. The University does not endorse or assume liability for any child-care service provider.

Will there be transportation to the Law School on Saturday?

There will be shuttle service on Saturday to and from the Gleacher Center and the Law School in the morning and the afternoon. The Gleacher Center is located in Chicago's downtown, just off the Magnificent Mile.
