2017 Alumni Weekend

Washburn Law invites you back to the law school for Alumni Weekend October 6-7, 2017. This event is a time for all Washburn Law alumni to celebrate their time at the law school. The weekend includes our annual Alumni Golf Classic, our Washburn Law Alumni Association Awards, and other activities on and around campus.

For those alumni celebrating milestone reunion years (class years ending in 2 or 7), we have arranged additional 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.
