The School of Law has two advisory boards: the Board of Visitors and the Alumni Board. These boards focus on broad policy issues and help serve collective interests among the bench, the bar, and the Law School. The support and counsel provided by our board members is invaluable as we prepare for the future.
The Board of Visitors is appointed to serve as an advisory committee to the Law School dean in her effort to maintain and improve the School’s national standing, and to provide assistance in self-studies and evaluations of the School and its programs.
The Alumni Board is a 36-member group of dedicated and talented alumni from across the country.
In addition, the School of Law has advisory boards that focus on particular programs, areas of law, or groups of alumni.
