Coming This Fall: Law School’s Alumni Online Community

Looking to network or reconnect with friends and classmates? This November, with the official launch of the Law School’s online community, more than 10,000 of your fellow U of M Law alumni will be just a click away!

The online community will allow alumni to reach out to and search for fellow Law School grads by geographic area, Law School activities, practice area, and other criteria and also form groups by class year, interest areas, and much more!

Check law.umn.edu/alumni/index.html for updates on the community, and keep an eye out for announcements and instructions for joining coming soon to an e-mail inbox and mailbox near you.
