Our alumni can be found in all areas of law and practices. Throughout the year we offer events and CLEs that are of general interest as well as programs targeted to certain groups. In particular, student organizations will invite former members to alumni receptions, career panels or other events that would be of interest to the group. The law school also provides event information based on practice areas. Check and update your alumni profile and contact information to be sure you won't miss an event hosted by your affinity organization or that is related to your practice area. The following are some formal alumni groups.

  1. Dean’s Alumni Advisory Board
