Be a part of the celebration, join your Reunion committee!

Reunion is an important, growing tradition at Loyola Law. The Office of Alumni Relations hosts formal Reunion programs each fall for classes celebrating milestone anniversaries: 5th through 50th years. Every year, we also welcome back all emeritus alumni (celebrating 51 or more years since graduation). We will be honoring classes ending in 3 and 8 this year.

Help promote your celebration! Reunion committee members work as ambassadors to the School of Law alongside a staff liaison who provides all the information you need to help ensure your classmates are connected and make your Reunion a success!

If you are interested in participating, contact the Office of Alumni Relations at lawalumnievents@luc.edu or 312.915.6580 to sign up today.

Help your class reach their fundraising goal by making a gift of any size to support the Law Reunion Class Scholarship, which will be awarded to a talented student studying at the School of Law this year. The winning class will be recognized at the 2023 Alumni Awards Dinner on October 28. Make your gift today at LUC.edu/ReunionChallenge.
