Alumni Association

Many career resources, including individual counseling, employment listings, referrals to legal career consultants and appointments for career planning and job search strategies, are also available to alumni. In addition, the UW Law School Alumni Association (LSAA) keeps graduates connected. The association hosts a variety of networking and social programs, including the Young Alumni Program's morning speaker series, where topics have ranged from human cloning to the Patriot Act. Other activities include class reunions, happy hours, an annual alumni golf tournament and the annual alumni banquet.

Its other functions are perhaps less visible, but still very valuable. The LSAA serves in an advisory capacity for law school deans; assists through committees in minority recruitment, student placement; and provides career planning services for students and alumni. It has provided funding for new student orientation programs; an active mentor program which pairs practicing attorneys with students; commencement exercises; publication of the first-year student handbook; and various scholarships and faculty assistance programs. Under the auspices of the LSAA, the law school publishes its twice-yearly UW Law magazine.
