Notre Dame Lawyers Connect | January-February 2018
Happy 2018!
Thank you Notre Dame Lawyers for your efforts in hosting our students visiting your cities during the winter break. Leaders from our Notre Dame Lawyer Committees assisted our student ambassadors in planning and hosting fabulous networking events that were well attended by our lawyers. Other ND Lawyers coordinated pro-bono and public-interest opportunities for our visiting Galilee students. NDLS is grateful for your time and efforts.

The Notre Dame London Law Program turns 50 years old in 2018, and we want you to celebrate with us in London!

The yearlong schedule of festivities will culminate with a four-day celebration October 20-23. Mark your calendars for October and plan to join us for tours of London landmarks, presentations by top legal scholars, evening entertainment, and plenty of fellowship with Notre Dame Law School alumni, friends, and students. Anthony Travel is organizing the travel packages and itineraries to make the trip easy and fun for all who attend.

Thank you to those alumni who have already expressed interest in receiving more information about the October celebration. Details will be sent to you in the coming months. If you have not yet signed up to receive more information, please click on the button below.
Send me information about London at 50
You can also follow the event and share information with friends on Facebook.

Law School alumni should have received the 2017 edition of Notre Dame Lawyer magazine in the mail recently.
If you would like a copy but did not receive one, send a request to Kevin Allen, the Law School's communications director, at

The cover story, Notre Dame Lawyers Coast to Coast, explores the Law School's national character and how Notre Dame Lawyer Committees help tie our community together.

Other features highlight the tradition of Notre Dame Law students serving as assistant rectors and a feel-good story about the ways that fellowships reward both donors and students.
