Family Day is always a highlight of the Fall semester of each new academic year, as we offer a special glimpse into a day in the life of students at the Law School. This year, Family Day is Sunday, October 6, 2013 from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. It is an opportunity for all students to share the Law School experience with their families and friends.
