Stanford Law School welcomes alumni to campus every five years to celebrate their class reunion over Alumni Weekend. Throughout the weekend, SLS engages them in the latest school initiatives and scholarship through interactive panel discussions and talks. We also offer several social gatherings that allow alumni to renew old friendships, celebrate classmates' successes, and reminisce about their time spent at Stanford. The weekend is always a highlight for our law school community.
The Alumni Associations were formed to bring together the diverse alumni of the law school both socially and professionally. These associations create opportunities for networking and mentoring relationships between current students and alumni. They promote the development of programs that will benefit the alumni community and support initiatives that advance legal education.
There are a number of ways Stanford Law School alumni can stay connected with their classmates online. From the SLS Alumni groups and discussion community inside Stanford’s Alumni Directory to our exclusive SLS professional networking group on LinkedIn, as well as our SLS Alumni Twitter and Facebook pages.
The goal of Stanford Alumni Regional Law Chapters is to strengthen the connection among alumni and between alumni and Stanford Law School. By creating and managing both social and academic events across the country, Alumni Regional Law Chapters provide opportunities for alumni to renew social ties, remain connected to the most current academic knowledge, and build professional networks.
Since 1958, the Stanford Law School Board of Visitors has played an important role in helping the dean of the law school respond to particular challenges facing legal education. Members of the board are appointed by the dean and are selected for their distinction as leaders in law, business, and service to the public, and demonstrated commitment to the school.
Alumni are an integral part of any institution of higher learning. Stanford Law School is no exception. SLS volunteers organize events and programs at the school as well as across the country through regional Law Societies and reunion committees. They also raise money, recruit students, assist with academic programs, and offer career advice. Volunteers help fellow alumni stay connected and contribute to the excellence of Stanford Law School.
