Alumni Networks and Communities

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.

We recognize that many of our alumni are active users on many of these sites and hope to make it easier for you to find us (and each other) online.

Learn what is available on each network:

SLS Alumni Directory & Community Network:

What is the SLS Groups and Discussions Community? 

  • There are more than 100+ official SLS class, chapter and diversity groups located in the Stanford Alumni Directory.  These groups were created to connect you with your classmates in a private and secure setting.

The SLS Groups and Discussion Community enables you to:

  • Share ideas, discuss hot topics, exchange documents and create events
  • Build groups and connect with people who share similar interests
  • Connect with fellow classmates in a network exclusive to the Stanford community

More on the SLS Groups and Discussion Community:

  • There are two types of groups for Alumni: Official and Alumni-Created Groups
  1. Official groups: These are groups co-managed by Stanford Law School staff and an assigned alumni based on class year and chapter affiliation. These groups can only be set up by a member of the SLS Alumni Relations staff and SLS has final approval on the content and programs presented in an official group. SLS alumni will automatically be placed in their specific class/chapter group by the Alumni Relations Department but can opt out if they choose.
  2. Alumni-Created groups: These are groups created by alumni, with no pre-approval needed from SLS before they are created. These are quick and easy to set up, but remember to “Search Groups” beforehand to make sure a similar group doesn’t already exist.

How do I join the SLS Groups and Discussion Community?

  • Register for Access: An alumni username and password is required to access the SLS and University Alumni Network including the Alumni Directories, Groups, and Discussion Boards.
    *If you haven’t registered yet, register now.
  • Already Registered? Connect to alumni. Remember that unlike Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, all alumni are listed in the alumni directory, and you do not have to make a friend connection before you contact anyone listed in the directory.
