Alumni Volunteer Opportunities

Class Reunions

Organizing a class reunion is a very rewarding experience. By helping to organize your class reunion, you can reconnect with old friends while helping others do the same. The Faculty of Law will provide you with all the tools and support you need to plan your reunion. Traditionally, individual classes hold a reunion every five years, although reunions can be planned for anytime.
