NIU Law Brings Classes Together for Reunions

November 20, 2015

DeKalb, Ill.--Over 100 alumni and guests enjoyed a spirited evening of laughter and memories at Harry Caray’s Italian Steakhouse in Lombard, IL on November 13, 2015. The groups gathered to celebrate class reunions for the NIU Law Classes of 1980, 1985, 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005 and 2010. The event drew together a number of notable alumni from around the country, from points as far as California, Colorado, New York and Virginia.

Dean Mark Cordes gave brief remarks, stressing the value and importance of alumni support. Third-year law student Krystle McNeely, who also spoke, thanked alumni for their continued support and paving a path of success for her and other students. The evening’s highlight included the recognition of two well-respected, retiring faculty members who were in attendance to celebrate with alumni. Associate Dean Dave Gaebler and Professor Dan Reynolds, who are stepping down at NIU Law after 32 and 33 years, respectively, taught most of the alumni in the room.
