Alumni Weekend

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 several 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.
