Alumni Weekend 2017


Join us and make new memories!

Alumni Weekend is always a highlight at Albany Law School. We are looking forward to welcoming you back to campus. We have a great weekend of events planned for you.

I know from attending my own reunion how meaningful the weekend can be.I hope that you will take advantage of this opportunity to become reacquainted with the people and things that make Albany Law School such a special place. What better time to reconnect with classmates, renew old friendships, and discover the exciting changes that are taking place on campus?

Please join us October 6-7, 2017, to celebrate the place where you began your career.
