Alumni Engagement Board

The board's mission is to grow the connections between the College of Law and its alumni.

The DePaul Law Alumni Engagement Board will:

  • Focus on supporting the career development opportunities for our current students and recent alumni through volunteering, mentoring, networking and special events
  • Serve as key ambassadors and advocates for DePaul Law among classmates, colleagues, friends and others in the legal community
  • Have a voice in strategic decisions for the College as well as the opportunity to serve on boards/working groups making a direct impact on mission-critical areas
  • Seek ways to engage law alumni in alumni activities, however the board will not be involved in fundraising and will have no dues requirement for membership
