Our office values the expertise and experience of our alumni and we regularly seek alumni, both locally and across the country, willing to share their time with tomorrow's attorneys. Below are some of the ways you can give back to your law school and its students.
Join Case Connections.
Case Connections is an "opt-in" database of alumni who have expressed a desire to speak with current students about their law practice, job search techniques, the legal market in their city or state, and other issues related to navigating the career path. We welcome alumni nationwide into this network. To join the database, register and complete your profile in our online portal
Speak on a panel.
Throughout the academic year, our office hosts a variety of programs and panels addressing different practice areas, trends in the law, interview tips, resume tips, networking, and more. Consider speaking on one of these panels or giving a presentation about your area of law or career path.
Serve as a mock interviewer.
Each winter, our office hosts a Mock Interview Saturday Program, which invites alumni and other practicing attorneys back to the school to conduct mock interviews with current students. We strive to include interviewers from all types of employers, including private practice, government, corporate, and public interest.
Conduct an employer outreach meeting.
Throughout the year, the CDO staff travels the country to meet with alumni and employers in an effort to learn what employers are looking for in candidates, what best practices and advice alumni want to share with current students, and to share information about the law school and its students. We would be delighted to meet with you.
Participate in our Interview Programs.
Make sure there are more attorneys from your alma mater at your office. Participate in our on-campus interview programs or in one of our off-campus programs in Boston, New York City, Southern California, Chicago or Washington, DC.
