VOLUNTEER

Reunion Committee & Class Agents: Reunions attract hundreds of alumni each year. Successful celebrations result when engaged volunteers serve on their Reunion Committee. Committees form the winter prior to the reunion weekend, and members allocate approximately two hours per month of their time. Class agents nurture these connections in between reunions. For information or to serve in one of these roles, contact Amanda Angel, director of annual giving, at amanda.angel@bc.edu or 617-552-8696.

Ambassadors Program: The Ambassadors Program promotes engagement with and giving to BC Law among alumni at law firms with a large BC Law presence. Participating firms and volunteer representatives provide perspective on the legal industry, mentor and recruit students, and partner with the Office of Advancement to strengthen the alumni community. Contact Amanda Angel, director of annual giving, at amanda.angel@bc.edu or 617-552-8696.

Mentoring Program: The 1L Mentor Program matches first-year students with alumni volunteers in the city where they want to practice and in the practice area they are considering. Mentors serve as informal advisors between students’ first- and second-year summers. Contact Christine Kelly ’97, director of alumni relations, at christine.kelly.3@bc.edu or call 617-552-4703.

Judging Oral Advocacy Competitions: Students participate in four in-house competitions: Negotiations (early autumn), Mock Trial (late autumn), Client Counseling (late winter), and Moot Court (spring). Alumni are needed to judge these competitions. Contact Rosemary Daly at rosemary.daly@bc.edu or 617-552-0536.
