AUWCL has many opportunities for alumni to participate in the career and professional development of current students and recent graduates, and to be involved in the WCL community. For example, the new Faculty Practice Group initiative offers alumni a chance to share career insights and offer students strategic advice and counseling related to their area of interest. AUWCL is also continuously seeking alumni volunteers as speakers and panelists for student and other groups, as judges for Moot Court, Mock Trial and Marshall Brennan, and as mentors.

We have made it super-easy for you to participate in a broad array of programs and career development efforts at WCL.

Please take 3 Minutes to Sign Up to Stay Involved in the WCL Community by completing our new AUWCL Alumni Volunteer Form.

Thank you.
