2018 Alumni Reunion and Awards Ceremony

A day celebrating all Washburn University School of Law Alumni!

Washburn Law invites you back to the law school for Alumni Reunion, October 6, 2018. This event is a time for all Washburn Law alumni to celebrate their time at the law school. The reunion includes activities on and around campus as well as our annual Washburn Law Alumni Association Awards.

For those alumni celebrating milestone reunion years (class years ending in 3 or 8), we have arranged activities designed to give you even more time to reconnect with former classmates.

Washburn Law faculty and staff look forward to meeting with you, hearing what you've been doing since you graduated from Washburn Law, and sharing the exciting plans in store for your Law School's future.
