We are happy to announce two new exciting alumni benefits!
First, the Office of Special Events and Continuing Legal Education is proud to offer CLE webcasts in diverse practice areas either live or on-demand at West LegalEdcenter®, the nation’s largest single source of online accredited CLE programs. As an AUWCL alumnus, you’ll receive exclusive discounts for this service! You’ll be able to access the law school’s wide-ranging and cutting-edge CLE programs as well as more than 200 programs each month on WLEc with an annual subscription discounted at a fraction of the cost. You can read more below about this exciting opportunity.
We are very pleased to announce that the Pence Law Library has arranged for WCL to be the first law school to provide its alumni access to the Law Journal Library through HeinOnline! This database has more than 1,700 law and law-related journals with a broad range of coverage. Alumni can search the database by article title, author, subject, state or country published, or by using keywords. Also, articles can be download in a searchable PDF format. Alumni access to HeinOnline is available exclusively though the CareerLink homepage which can be accessed using your personal login and password. If you do not have a CareerLink account, you may request on by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org including your full name, date of graduation, degree program, and your primary email address (which will become your CareerLink Username). Registration may take up to two business days.

Lower your loan payments! Beginning July 1, 2009, Income-Based Repayment (IBR) will be available as a new loan repayment option for federal loans (undergraduate and graduate). IBR uses a sliding scale to determine how much borrowers can pay on their loans. For most borrowers, IBR loan payments will be less than 10% of their income. Borrowers must qualify for a "partial financial hardship" to receive a reduced payment. Based on program guidelines, many WCL graduates will qualify. Remaining debt, if any, will be forgiven after 25 years of qualifying payments. For graduates working in the public sector, the new Public Service Loan Forgiveness program will forgive remaining debt on federal loans after 10 years of qualifying payments.
WCL has debuted a new podcast series about recent developments in federal debt relief assistance. In conjunction with Equal Justice Works, the series discusses both IBR and Public Service Loan Forgiveness. The first podcast is a general program overview. Subsequent podcasts will discuss specific portions of this federal program and other debt assistance programs. Alumni with questions about this program or other debt relief assistance programs should contact Jarrod Shirk, Public Interest Coordinator, in the Office of Public Interest at email@example.com.

Engaging Our Alumni...
"We have the unique responsibility of building relationships with our alumni and the goal of integrating them into the life of the school. The rich tradition of WCL grows with each graduating class and with it comes new opportunities for alumni participation."
American University Washington College of Law has more than 12,000 domestic and international alumni. Membership in the Alumni Association is granted upon graduation. Since no dues are collected for you membership, participation in Alumni activities and support of the annual fund is encouraged and appreciated.
The Office of Development and Alumni Relations is continually striving to reach out to alumni and remind them of the important role they play at WCL long after graduation. From serving as a judge on moot court or as a speaker at a student group function, reconnecting with the school can not only enrich the lives of volunteers but also that of students.
Here at WCL, volunteer opportunities abound. All we need is you!
