Law Alumni Weekend

Friday – Sunday | September 16 – 18

Law Alumni Weekend

Brand new this year — Law Alumni Weekend will be held in conjunction with Homecoming!
Along with Law School-only events held in Worrell Professional Center, all law alumni are welcomed back for all the weekend festivities, and Law School classes ending in 2 or 7 will be celebrating their reunions.

We invite you back to visit your classmates, celebrate your Wake Forest Law memories, and cheer on the Deacs as they take on Liberty. Come on your own or bring the entire family – there will be something for everyone!

If you are in a reunion class and would like to volunteer, please contact Megan Ratley at


REGISTRATION NOTES: There are two specific places you’ll want to visit on the registration page under “View by Category:” Law Alumni Weekend Events and General Homecoming Events. Also take a look at Special Tours & Events and Affinity Events.

  • Law Alumni Weekend Events – here you will find two events specifically for Law alumni and held at the Law School: the Law Alumni & Reunions Welcome Dinner (Friday) and Law Breakfast with Faculty (Saturday), as well as the Alumni Tailgate where we will have a Law School tent complete with our own bar!
  • General Homecoming Events – Here you will register to attend Party So Dear which is a great kick off to the weekend, Festival on the Quad (great for families), and more!
  • Reunion Note: The “Reunion Events” tab is for undergraduate reunion parties. Please do not sign up for those. You will register under the Law Alumni & Reunions Welcome Dinner.
