November, alumni around the country made new acquaintances,
renewed relationships, and shared memories of their
law school years. Thanks to Scott Gautier ’97
and Kelly Frazier for graciously hosting a Los Angeles
event at their Manhattan Beach home. I was pleased
to see a mixture of familiar and new faces there and
among alumni in Phoenix as well. The Career Services
Office hosted a Public Service Gathering in Washington
D.C. I am delighted that so many of you are willing
to give advice to students about career advancement
On November 16, the Law School held its 29th
Annual Alumni Luncheon, honoring nine outstanding
alumni and their contributions to the legal community.
With record attendance of more than 350 people and
over $36,000 in sponsorship support for the Alumni
Board of Directors Scholarship Fund from friends and
alumni, we have a great deal to be thankful for. I
am confident that with the leadership of our Alumni
Board of Directors, our alumni networking efforts
will continue to prosper.
We are committed to improving how we reach out to
you and your fellow alums, as well as how to better
connect you to one another. Please take advantage
of our new Online
Community , which allows you to update your employment
and contact information, as well as connect with fellow
alumni. To log on, complete this Online
Community password request form, and you will
receive a reply with your username and password. The
Online Community allows alumni to search for each
other through a myriad of options, including class
year, practice area, and city. Happy searching.
I wish you a healthy and happy holiday season.
