Build Our Alumni Community
Online Community The BC Law School LinkedIn page is a useful resource for alumni. See what colleagues are doing professionally, read about the latest events on campus, build your career network, follow classmates’ achievements and let them know about your own. Join your fellow followers at LinkedIn.
BC Law Magazine The magazine is published twice a year, in January and June, and year-round online at lawmagazine.bc.edu. Contact editor Vicki Sanders at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-552-2873 to share news, letters to the editor, or class notes.
Regional Chapters & Affinity Groups BC Law alumni gather to socialize, network, and stay connected. Our newest group, Graduates Of the Last Decade (GOLD), fosters community among our most recently graduated alumni. Please contact us if you would like to start or join a chapter or affinity group, or to help organize an event.
GOLD Class Agents The GOLD (Graduates of the Last Decade) Class Agents work closely with BC Law to strategize and provide feedback on the philanthropic priorities of BC Law’s GOLD graduates. They also work on various other important programs and have the opportunity to connect with fellow alumni and expand their professional networks. To get involved in this engaging network, please email email@example.com.
Reunion Committees The most successful reunions occur when engaged volunteers serve on their Reunion Committee. Committees begin forming the summer prior to reunion weekend, and members spend about two hours per month on committee work.
Connect With Students
Mentoring Program The 1L Mentor Program matches first-year students with alumni volunteers in the city where they want to live and in the practice area they are considering. Mentors serve as informal advisors between students’ first- and second-year summers.
Judging Oral Advocacy Competitions Hundreds of students participate in four in-house competitions: Negotiations (fall), Client Counseling (fall), Mock Trial (fall in 2021), and Moot Court (spring). Alumni from all career areas are needed to judge these competitions.
Invest In Our Future
Advancing Excellence When you give to BC Law, you have a meaningful impact on our entire community. Your gifts sustain everything from scholarships that attract and retain talented students to faculty research grants that keep BC Law at the forefront of scholarship.
Named Scholarship Student scholars are selected each academic year based on a number of factors, such as leadership, financial need, academic excellence, and public service achievements.
Law School Fund Gifts to the annual fund provide immediate financial support for many of BC Law’s most important needs. Key funding priorities have included financial aid, public interest summer stipends, post-graduate fellowships, and faculty research grants.
Dean’s Council Giving Societies In appreciation for leadership-level gifts, members receive invitations to special receptions and events and enjoy membership in comparable University-wide societies. To learn more, visit bc.edu/lawgivingsocieties.
Drinan Society This society recognizes loyal donors. Drinan Society members have given to BC Law for two or more consecutive years, and sustaining members have given for five or more consecutive years. The society is named for Robert F. Drinan, SJ, who served as dean of BC Law, 1956 to 1970.
