Alumni can be valuable resources for students as they look for summer and permanent employment. Stanford Law School students have diverse professional goals and are interested in working in law firms, public interest organizations, government, business, and more. Some other examples of participation include:
- Joining the SLS Career Network
- Serving as a career mentor
- Speaking on career panels
- Posting job announcements through the OCS
Be our guest and table host as we bring alumni and students together so that students, while practicing the skill of networking/informational interviewing, can also learn about and practice proper business etiquette.
As guest speaker, alumni share personal stories of their career paths and mentor students in a small group setting. We would like to provide students with the opportunity to hear about what you do, how you got there, and obtain practical advice on how they can best market themselves in their field(s) of interest.
1L Moot Court
Help judge the 1L moot court arguments held each spring. Nearly seventy attorneys are needed to provide feedback and guidance to first-year students. Unlike the Kirkwood Moot Court Competition, 1L moot court is required of all first-year law students as a part of their legal research and writing class.

SLSNavigator is an online curriculum and career guide designed to help students get the most from their experience at SLS. If they know what kind of law they want to practice (or even if they don't), SLSNavigator identifies courses, clinics, websites, journals, blogs, books, alumni, and more based on a student’s area of interest with relevant resources designed to help them move closer than ever to their professional goal. Alumni can participate in SLSNavigator by reflecting on their experience at law school and sharing that knowledge with the Navigator team: knowing what you know now, what courses would you take (whether inside or outside the law school, and why? Which blogs do you follow? Who do you consider to be the experts in your field? Which books do you keep always at hand? Our students are eager to benefit from your invaluable insight. To volunteer for this knowledge-sharing opportunity or to learn more, please email our SLSNavigator alumni representative Beth Roemer at email@example.com.
