University of Kansas School of Law

Spring has arrived in Kansas, and the flowering trees around Green Hall are starting to show their colors. The law school is bustling as ever. More than 100 alumni ventured back on Friday for the second annual Return to Green CLE. A three-judge panel from the Kansas Court of Appeals is hearing oral arguments today in the Snell Courtroom and will judge the moot court finals this afternoon. We hope you find a reason to visit us in the coming months. Remember, the spring edition of the KU Law Magazine will be electronic rather than printed.
We will let you know soon when and where to find it online.
