150 Years of ND Law


Celebrate ND Law's sesquicentennial

The first law class at Notre Dame was held on February 1, 1869 — which means Friday is the Law School's 150th birthday.

The Law School community will celebrate this milestone throughout 2019, but the big celebration will be during this year's Law School Homecoming Weekend.

This year's Homecoming will be the weekend of September 28, when the Fighting Irish host Virginia. Save the date and plan to join us for the party!
