Alumni Judges Committee

​​​​For many years, DePaul Law has been proudly known as Illinois' judicial law school, with numerous alumni serving on both federal and state courts. Currently, over 200 alumni serve as judges in various jurisdictions across the United States, with over 125 serving in the state of Illinois.

The Alumni Judges Committee works directly with the Dean to provide feedback and make recommendations on issues related to judges in our alumni community. This includes engaging current judicial alumni, programming related to the judicial system, getting more of our graduates interested and hired as judicial law clerks, and pipe-lining more of our graduates to the judiciary.​​
