Alumni Engagement Board

​​​​​​​The ​DePaul Law Alumni Engagement Board's (AEB) mission is to grow the connections between the College of Law and our alumni.

The AEB has four main objectives:

  • 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.
The Alumni Engagement Board is currently seeking new members. To apply for membership, simply fill out the Board Member Application: DePaul Law Alumni Engagement Board Member Application.pdf

The deadline to submit the application is Friday, October 16th.
