Your Alumni Career Network
The best way to fuel your career is by building relationships and exploring options, whether you are a new graduate or considering a major life change. The Law School hosts an Alumni Career Network (ACN) – a group of alumni volunteers who will provide career, life-stage, or general advice to Law students and fellow alumni. We welcome your participation on both sides of this service – as a volunteer and/or as a resource. The ACN is not a job-posting/seeking database.

To join the Alumni Career Network, look for the Join Alumni Career Network link in the column labeled CAREERS.
