Law Alumni Board

The Law Alumni Board is a group of dedicated alumni who support the College of Law’s alumni relations efforts.

The Board is actively involved in promoting alumni events, developing opportunities for student-alumni interaction, providing alumni services, and encouraging alumni giving to the College of Law.

The Alumni Board is composed of approximately 40 alumni, each serving a two-year term. The Board meets quarterly, including one annual meeting on campus either during Homecoming or the Alumni-Student Career Conference, and its committees conduct business between full board meetings.

Applications for new board members are accepted year round and are due by March 15 of each year for terms beginning on July 1. For more information about the Law Alumni Board, please see the Member Information Sheet.
