Alumni and Endowment Funds

Alumni

Yale Law School alumni serve as distinguished practitioners, public servants, academics, judges, and business entrepreneurs all over the world. Renowned in their professional lives, the more than 13,000 alumni play a vital role in the global Yale Law School community. They renew social ties, network with one another, and offer their knowledge of legal scholarship and practice at Law School gatherings in a variety of places in the United States and abroad throughout the year. Graduates also serve as practitioners-in-residence and mentors in the School’s centers and programs, and attend and participate in the many lectures and conferences occurring at their alma mater.

The Yale Law School Association consists of all graduates. It was founded to strengthen the ties both among graduates and between graduates and the Law School. In approximately twenty cities across the United States and abroad, Yale Law School local associations provide social, intellectual, and professional opportunities for graduates. Whether it is a group of alumni in Miami discussing immigration reform with Yale Law School’s newest faculty member, Professor Cristina Rodríguez ’00; an alumni panel discussion in Washington, D.C., or New York City on the Supreme Court’s preceding term; an informal discussion about the same-sex marriage cases in Philadelphia led by Professor William Eskridge ’78; or the Los Angeles gathering with alumni, summer associates, and incoming students featuring a talk by Professor Heather Gerken on “Lessons Learned from the 2008 Election and a Look Forward to Critical Issues for 2012,” Yale Law School alumni maintain important connections with each other, with current students, and with their alma mater. For a listing of upcoming alumni events and further information about YLS alumni, visit www.law.yale.edu/alumni; e-mail alumni.law@yale.edu; telephone 203.432.1690.

Overseeing and supporting the YLS Association is its approximately 180-member Executive Committee, which meets twice a year in New Haven to energize members and remind them why Yale Law School is such a special place. The most recent gathering in April 2013 included class visits, a dinner matching alumni and students who have common interests, a faculty luncheon speaker, a tour of the newly renovated Yale Art Gallery, a tour of Law School offices at 42 Ashmun Street, an informal talk about the China Center, a Happy Hour with students, and a festive dinner with Dean Post. This program strengthens the Yale Law School community worldwide by connecting alumni with each other, with current students, and with the School. Meetings take place twice a year at the Law School, led by the present officers: chair, John R. Firestone ’85; president, Victoria A. Cundiff ’80; vice presidents, Michelle H. Browdy ’90, Derek B. Dorn ’02, Ari Q. Fitzgerald ’90, Celia Goldman ’86, Deborah J. Verdile ’94; treasurer, Michael J. DeLaurentis ’78; and secretary, Stanley E. Soper ’91.

The online YLS Career Connections is a database of more than 1,800 alumni who have volunteered to assist current students and fellow graduates seeking career advice, and those wanting to connect with current student organizations. Members can be searched by name, area of expertise, employer type, geographic location, student organization, and more. Alumni are welcome to join, current members can update their information, and both alumni and students can search for mentors online. For more information, contact the Career Development Office’s director of recruiting at 203.432.1692.

All graduates of the Law School are invited to annual Alumni Weekends, which take place at the Law School in the fall for three days of events, including talks, panel discussions, class events, and festive meals. Many students attend events, serve as aides, and are matched for a breakfast with returning alumni on the basis of their legal areas of interest. Graduates celebrating their reunions (fifth, tenth, fifteenth, etc.) reconnect with classmates at special Saturday reunion dinners in local dining halls and Sunday brunches at the homes of faculty or other alumni. The theme for Alumni Weekend 2013 is “Global Constitutionalism.”
