The weekend will provide all Oxford Law alumni living and working across Europe, with a unique opportunity to catch up with old friends whilst developing social and career networks. Those alumni who did not study law but now find themselves working in the field of law are welcome to attend too.

We would also like to hear your stories and memories of studying the MJur or Diploma at Oxford that you would be happy to share with us. For example - What did you think of the course? What memories of your classes can you share? Was there a memorable tutor or lecture that you attended?

Please be assured that this is not a fund-raising venture but a commemorative exercise. We are hoping to display some celebratory materials over the weekend and possibly produce a webpage of memorabilia.

If you do have some memories to share with us, we would love to hear from you.
