Once a Law Dawg, Always a Law Dawg

Your UW Law connection doesn’t end when you leave campus.

We hope you will join in our efforts to engage our alumni to benefit students, inform the public about UW Law’s remarkable achievements, and serve as ambassadors to the legal community and beyond.

Join us as we encourage students to explore their passions and equip them with intellectual tools and hands-on experience in their journey to become professionals who use their legal education to meet the needs of their community and work in any field they choose. Celebrate the impact our alumni are making in the communities they serve. Remain connected with your school and its alumni, students and faculty.
