Regional and International Events
The Law School holds approximately 50 alumni events each year. Several of the events are held overseas. The types of events vary from a reception at Fenway Park in Boston, to a judges’ panel in New York, to a get-together in Paris.
If you are interested planning events with other alumni, please contact your regional YLS alumni association or the Alumni Affairs Office. For details on how to host an upcoming event, see our Host or Suggest an Event webpage.
The annual Alumni Weekend which takes place in the fall in New Haven offer lots of volunteer opportunities for YLS graduates. Whether it is serving on a reunion gift committee, as a reunion chair, as an attendee, or as a panelist, graduates enjoy getting involved in the reunions which approximately 1,000 YLS alumni and guests attend. Contact the Alumni Affairs Office if you would like to get involved with your reunion.
YLS Career Connections

- Happy hour at a local pub
- Evening at the theater
- Speaker series at a law firm
- Fenway tour and Red Sox game
If you are willing to host an event, please send an email to the Alumni Affairs Office. We are happy to work with you to plan the gathering to ensure that everything runs smoothly.
