Just 20 words of encouragement can make a student’s day a little brighter, a little easier, and serve as a reminder that at Cardozo, we are all in this together.

Reunion 2020 - Postponed
Due to continued concerns and uncertainty surrounding the spread of coronavirus, this year's Reunion has been postponed. We will keep the Classes of 1980, 1985, 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005, 2010 & 2015 informed on how we plan to celebrate them as details become available.
Reunions are a special time for alumni to come together as a class to re-engage and support the Law School. We hope that you will attend and celebrate this anniversary with us in addition to making a personal contribution towards your class gift.

2020 Alumni Celebration
The 2020 Alumni Celebration was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We continue to raise money for the Students in Action Fund (SAF), an inaugural initiative created by Dean Melanie Leslie '91. When it launched, SAF's goal was to enhance the student experience by providing students valuable educational development and professional growth opportunities outside of Cardozo’s classrooms. Now, in these unanticipated circumstances, the Students in Action Fund is also serving as a critical emergency relief fund for students, with the goal of providing immediate financial assistance in the wake of COVID-19.
A special thanks to our generous sponsors:
Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP
Meltzer, Lippe, Goldstein & Breitstone, LLP
