This week we make the Letter of the Law your handy pocket guide to the full lineup of Homecoming and Reunion gatherings taking place between now and the near-certain victory to come Saturday afternoon over Oregon State. 

We are excited to celebrate with all of our Arizona Law alumni, students, staff, friends, and family!

Until the footnotes,
There's No Place Like Homecoming

A Symposium in Honor of Professor David Gantz
David Gantz has served the college as a Professor of Law and Director of the International Trade and Business Law Program since 1993. His teaching resonates throughout the legal profession, with former students leading and influencing international courts, firms, and organizations.

At this special event, we honor retiring Professor Gantz for his service and legacy in the law. During the symposium, faculty and former students will share their stories on his continuing impact.
