There are a variety of ways our alumni can remain active members of the Law School community. No matter if you live near campus or halfway around the world, there is a Club or Society to keep you connected with the school and fellow alumni. For more information about these groups, please contact Kim Benenhaley (email@example.com) or Jackie Kim (firstname.lastname@example.org).
