Reconnect | Reminisce | Reunite


Join us for a memorable journey down memory lane at the 2024 Alumni Reunion! Alumni reunion is more than just a gathering; it is a vibrant celebration of shared experiences, lasting friendships, and the impact of your law degree. We extend a heartfelt invitation to all AUWCL alumni to return to campus and be a part of something truly special.

What to Expect:

  • Reconnect with former classmates and forge new connections.
  • Engage with esteemed faculty and staff who have shaped your journey.

From reminiscing about the good old days (including those at the Myers Building on main campus, the 4801 Mass Ave building, and our current 8.5 acre campus) to catching up on recent triumphs, this reunion will foster a space for laughter, nostalgia, and cherished memories.
