Alumni Events



I have been away from Kirkland for over 20 years, and the primary reason why I keep in touch is the quality of the people you see at Kirkland & Ellis—high quality, high powered, intellectual, good people. - Gregg Garisma, Alumnus, Principal and General Counsel, Studio Gang Architects


The Alumni Engagement Program's events provide a collegial environment where alumni can connect with former colleagues—whether they are still at Kirkland or have moved on to become alumni. View our photo gallery and watch the videos below for a sneak peek into our latest alumni events.
