Every fall, Michigan Law hosts classes celebrating milestone anniversaries in the Quad: 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, and 50 years. We also welcome back all emeritus alumni celebrating 51 or more years since graduation.
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.
Distinguished Alumni Award
The Distinguished Alumni Award recognizes extraordinary alumni whose achievements exemplify the values and ethos of the University of Michigan Law School.
Presented annually to one or more deserving alumni, the award is intended to highlight individuals who have made an exceptional impact on their profession, community, and Michigan Law.
