One of the most valuable ways to stay connected with UW Law is to volunteer. Your involvement can help students develop their advocacy skills, connect you to fellow alumni or bring your alumni event idea to life.
The UW Law Professional Mentor Program pairs J.D. students with professional legal mentors. Professional mentors and student mentees are paired based on common characteristics such as practice area interests, undergraduate institution and previous employment experiences. Professional mentors offer guidance and encouragement while facilitating networking and job shadowing opportunities. Professional mentors and student mentees meet throughout a calendar year. Register to become a professional mentor.
Moot Court Competition Judge
UW Law's Moot Court Honor Board, which assists law students in developing their advocacy skills through practice and competition, seeks the expertise of alumni. MCHB relies on volunteer attorneys to provide judging and feedback for our in-house competitions. In addition to allowing the competitions to function, volunteer judges provide valuable feedback that helps students improve their advocacy skills. For your service as a judge, you may receive free CLE credits.
With Huskies@Work, students and alums join together for a unique job shadowing program virtually or in-person. Just fill out an application to be matched based on career field and interests. The program is offered during a month each fall and spring.
Participate in a Clinic or Class
Are you working on an interesting case? Have you set a precedent? Students, faculty members, and clinic directors welcome your involvement and insight. Faculty often make class time for practicing attorneys to visit and discuss real world experiences that relate to the course material. If you have a topic in mind, our staff can help connect you with the right students and faculty
Class Reunion Agent
An active class committee is integral to the success of class reunions. As a committee member, you serve both as a class leader and as a liaison between your peers and UW Law. In the fall of 2018 we will celebrate reunions for classes ending in ‘8 or ‘3. If this is your reunion year, get involved today! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer.
Partner on an Alumni Event
Have a great event idea that UW Law can partner with you or your firm on? We can help provide resources to spread the word, provide a school update from a leadership representative and bring UW Law swag for attendees.
