Recent Alumni Career/Financial Planning


The Office of Alumni Relations and the Recent Alumni Committee presented a workshop to recent Seattle University law graduates on Putting Your Law Degree to Work in Tough Times.


The Recent Alumni Committee, and more specifically the Program Development subcommittee led by Melissa Chin ’08, David Keenan ’08 and Megan Gebhardt ’06, have developed a strong program to address some of the challenges we know many recent grads are facing. Interim Dean Annette Clark '89 will attend and provide a welcome at the noon session, and the workshop will conclude with a networking reception.  Please visit the website for more information.



Regional Programs – Fall 2009


Alumni Regional Programming


Seattle University School of Law is expanding its outreach to alumni through its regional alumni programs. Alumni chapters are currently being formed in New York and Washington D.C., and there is interest by other groups in Southern California, Tacoma, Alaska, Chicago and Texas. The Office of Alumni Relations will work with alumni leadership and partner with the Center for Professional Development, the Office of Admission, and the Externship Program to further develop the specific programming in each region.


The director of Alumni Relations is scheduled to visit alumni in the following areas this fall:

Thursday, September 3, Southern California
Thursday, October 22, Washington, DC
Thursday, October 29, Chicago

Also, plans are underway to finalize the Tacoma Swearing-In Ceremony in October, which was a huge success last year and very much appreciated by the graduates and their families as well as the bench and bar in Tacoma and Pierce County. We are also trying to schedule a Texas program in the late fall.



Alumni Weekend 2010 – April 23-24


Another annual tradition has been launched at Seattle University School of Law – Alumni Weekend.  More than 300 graduates and their guests gathered at the law school in April. During the weekend celebration, former classmates became reacquainted, and new friendships were formed.  
Plans are already underway for Alumni Weekend 2010, which will be held on Friday, April 23 and Saturday, April 24.  We are seeking reunion committee chairs as well as members of the Classes of 1980, 1990 and 2000 who wish to work on their 30-, 20- and 10-year reunions, respectively.  If you are interested in working with the Law Alumni Board to expand on the successful launch of Alumni Weekend and to help make the 2010 celebration even more memorable, please be in touch with Grace Greenwich.
