Alumni Weekend

Alumni Weekend will be October 25-28, 2018.

Stanford Law School welcomes alumni to campus every five years to celebrate their class reunion over Alumni Weekend. Throughout the weekend, SLS engages them in the latest school initiatives and scholarship through interactive panel discussions and talks. We also offer social gatherings that allow alumni to renew old friendships, celebrate classmates’ successes, and reminisce about their time spent at Stanford. The weekend is always a highlight for our law school community.

Alumni Weekend 2018 will also be the capstone celebration for Stanford Law School’s 125th anniversary—our opportunity to recognize 125 years of SLS’s impact in the world. We hope that you can join us on campus to mark this milestone.
