Message from Dean Jackson

Hello, Washburn Law Alumni and Community,

Graduation is approaching quickly, and we are ready to welcome the next class of Washburn Law alumni to our ranks. This is always an exciting time as we get to witness these new attorneys begin their legal careers. It’s also a great time to reflect on the benefits of being a part of the Washburn alumni network.

Back in February, I had the privilege of joining 18 fellow Washburn Law alumni and their families in Washington, D.C. as we were sworn into the U.S. Supreme Court. It was an honor to be a part of this amazing trip, and I hope those that joined us would agree  it was a wonderful experience. We are already looking ahead and planning for the next trip in 2026. We will release the date as soon as it is available from the Court, and I hope you will be able to join us.

Next up, we will be visiting alumni in Texas. On Wednesday, April 10, our team will be in Houston visiting with alumni and sharing exciting initiatives happening on campus. Washburn president, JuliAnn Mazachek will be joining me and other university leaders. Following the Houston event, we will travel to Dallas for an event on Thursday, April 11. For our alumni in these areas, I hope you are able to attend. For additional details about these two events, visit

As we head into the summer, we’ll be on the road again, this time travelling throughout Western Kansas. The last week of June, we will visit several cities from Salina to Liberal and points in between. We’ll be visiting with alumni in these areas, finding out about your accomplishments and sharing updates about the law school.  Full details should be available in the coming month.

Also coming up in June is an opportunity for CLE credit. On June 13-14, the law school will host Selected Topics and Miscellany CLE.  This CLE will be available online and in person. The specifics are being finalized and will also be shared in an upcoming newsletter.

I hope you’ll take advantage of these opportunities to once again connect with your alma mater, share your accomplishments, and learn more about what is happening at the law school. As I always say, this is your law school. I love hearing from you and hope you will continue to connect.
