Reunion Weekend 2021: A Virtual Celebration

For this year's Reunion Weekend, alumni of the University of Chicago Law School gathered virtually from April 30 to May 2. They enjoyed various events, such as an LLM gathering; a tour of the Law School led by Associate Dean for Communications Marsha Nagorsky, '95; an alumni panel; faculty masterclasses; and virtual class gatherings.

State of the Law School

Join Dean Miles for a State of the Law School address. Charles Todd, Dean of Students, and current students will also share their perspectives on life at the Law School during COVID-19.

Tour of the Law School

Join Marsha Ferziger Nagorsky, ’95, Associate Dean for Communications and Lecturer in Law, as she leads you through a tour of her beloved Law School. See how much has changed over the last sixty years, how much has stayed the same, and learn more about temporary modifications to the building during COVID-19.

Faculty Masterclass: Troubled Cities

The good news is that when humans are pushed together, innovations increase and climate change is mitigated. The bad news is that income inequality, lost jobs, and government failures are more obvious. Let’s talk about whether we ought to worry more about flight or overcrowding. Greenberg Seminars offer students the opportunity to engage in informal discussions with Law School faculty members on a range of topics.

Faculty Masterclass: Federalism Big Data

Private data markets—though which firms buy and sell data and accumulate data assets—have received sustained academic attention. But data markets are not for the private sector alone: In our federalist system, our levels of government also buy and sell data from one another. This talk will describe this intergovernmental data market and the ways it has propelled the aggregation of governmental data, complicated data governance, and raised novel legal challenges.

Alumni Panel: The Evolution of UChicago Law Women Over 50 Years

Fifty years ago, the Vietnam-era Reunion Classes of 1970 and 1971 ushered in a bold new generation of women at the Law School and in the legal profession. Join this lively discussion to hear how women students, faculty and alumni challenged barriers to women then and what the future looks like now for women in the profession.
