Black Alumni Reunion

Michigan Law’s Black Alumni Reunion, formerly known as the African American Alumni Reunion, is held in Ann Arbor every three years. The next Reunion will be spring 2026.

The Reunions are an opportunity for alumni to connect with current students, attend and participate in panels and other programming, bond with fellow Michigan Law graduates, and support the recruitment and matriculation of Black students at Michigan Law. The Reunions are open to all Michigan Law alumni registrants and their guests.

The 2023 Black Alumni Reunion took place March 24–26, 2023, to coincide with the annual Butch Carpenter Scholarship Gala, hosted by the Black Law Students Association, as well as Preview Weekend for admitted students.
