An Update on the 2020 Reunion

An Update on the 2020 Reunion

We write to share our plans for Law Alumni Weekend (May 8-10, 2020). Please know how much we appreciate your patience and support as we have tried to manage a rapidly evolving situation.

On March 15, in an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the CDC recommended canceling events with 50 or more people for the next eight weeks.  We are, therefore, canceling reunions this year. 

While we are very sorry to take this step, it is for the good of our alumni and their families and guests.  We know you were looking forward to returning to Charlottesville to spend time with friends and classmates.  We hope to give you that chance next year.

Our intention is to combine the 2020 reunion classes with the 2021 reunion classes for a “grand reunion” May 14-16, 2021. We will continue to communicate with all alumni in the 2020 reunion cycle as we work toward this goal. 

If you have already registered for your reunion, we will refund your reunion registration fees.  

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to write or call us.

During this time, we are reminded of the ties that bind and the affection we have for one another. We are all part of the UVA Law community, which will remain strong and endure.  

We wish you the best and look forward to seeing you as soon as possible.
