University of Kansas School of Law

Autumn has descended on Mount Oread, and the speed of life at Green Hall is keeping pace with nature’s changes. Fall on-campus interviews wrapped up last week. Student organizations are hosting social events and fundraisers, like Public Interest Law Society’s Casino Night, and bringing in high-caliber special guests, such as Robert Levy of D.C. v. Heller fame. We have been thrilled to see so many alumni returning in the past few weeks, first for Reunion Weekend and then for Homecoming. You might enjoy these photos from both occasions. And remember, you can keep up with KU Law in any season by joining us on Facebook or Twitter.
