Annual Alumni Events


Each year, the dean hosts a family-friendly reception for alumni prior to the University of Alabama Homecoming football game.

The Farrah Banquet

Hosted by the dean and the chair of the Farrah Law Alumni Society, the annual Farrah Banquet is a special and elegant evening – held each year in the spring – to honor the Sam W. Pipes Distinguished Alumnus Award and scholarship donors.

Alumni Receptions

We host a number of local and regional alumni receptions throughout the year.  Recent receptions have been held in Birmingham, Mobile, Huntsville, Houston, Washington, D.C., Nashville, and more!  We announce alumni receptions in the monthly Alumni News email, post messages to Facebook and Twitter, and send individual invitations (typically via email) to alumni in the area approximately six weeks in advance.  Stay tuned for more information – we may be visiting your city soon!


We are thrilled to support the efforts of alumni who wish to gather classmates for a special event – dinner, reception, tailgate, etc. – to celebrate a milestone graduation year.  We will provide space in the Law School, help prepare invitation lists and send out notices on behalf of class members, and assist with booking a caterer, etc. if there is interest in coordinating a class reunion activity.

Alabama State Bar Meeting

Each year, Alabama Law hosts an alumni reception and a special breakfast for Order of the Coif members as part of the State Bar annual meeting schedule.  For more information, visit
