New Dates for Alumni Weekend 2021: October 22-24 & November 5-7

September 17, 2020

Because of ongoing COVID-19 safety concerns and restrictions, Yale Law School has cancelled Alumni Weekend 2020. Instead, all alumni are invited to connect virtually at Connect.Celebrate 2020 on October 17-18, 2020, with events for all alumni and class events for 0s and 5s planned by reunion social chairs. 

ANNOUNCING REUNIONS IN 2021: Mark your calendars for Alumni Weekend 2021, which will take place October 22-24, 2021 for classes ending in 5s and 6s and November 5-7, 2021 for classes ending in 0s and 1s (not October 1-3). We will take advantage of this unique opportunity to bring adjacent classes back to YLS at the same time, while holding special events for each reunion class, including the Saturday night Class Receptions and Dinners. Please see the chart below for information on your class's Alumni Weekend 2021 dates.

We welcome all Yale Law School alumni to visit New Haven for either of the scheduled Alumni Weekends, even if it is not your reunion year. New Haven is beautiful in the fall and there is no better place to reconnect with classmates and friends. We encourage our "Legal Eagles," who graduated in or before 1959, to attend the first weekend, October 22-24, 2021.   

We've prepared a list of Frequently Asked Questions to assist you in your planning process. If you have further questions, please reach out to the Alumni Engagement team at

Reunion Giving

Yale Law School has a proud history and strong tradition of reunion giving. In celebration of your reunion, we ask you to join us in supporting today’s vibrant Law School community. Gifts or pledges received through Alumni Weekend will count towards your class reunion campaign total.

Today is a wonderful time to be blessed with legal training and to be able to go out and take on the enormous challenges of a difficult world — with an aspiration to lead tempered by humility at the complexity, difficulty, discipline, and self-sacrifice inherent in the task.”
