LEO 50-Year Celebration

Now in its fiftieth year, the Legal Educational Opportunities (LEO) Banquet celebrates our successes and reaffirms our commitment to maintaining one of the most interesting and dynamic learning environments in the US.

Law Building

In 1868, the Law Department opened with fifteen students. The program, a year-long course of study, was held in the State Capitol. It wasn’t until 1893 that the first law building opened on Bascom Hill.

One of Homecoming’s biggest spectacles doesn’t involve the marching band or the football team, but a group of third-year law students with canes charging down the field toward Camp Randall Stadium’s south end-zone before kickoff.
