Our community is constantly evolving.
Our Alumni Community
Boston College Law School’s alumni make up a worldwide network of over 13,000 members who are committed to supporting each other and mentoring current BC Law students. At BC Law, we believe in the value of experiential education, and we have watched as our alumni have taken the lessons learned in our lectures and applied them to their professional careers.
As we prepare to cultivate the next generation of leaders, we encourage your active participation in our alumni community. By attending our events, volunteering for BC Law, and making a gift, you can help ensure that our community remains on the rise.
The Power of Your Gift
“During my time here at BC Law, I've participated in a few of the wide-ranging practical experiences offered by our outstanding faculty. These hands-on experiences have been instrumental in helping me to discover my legal calling. Perhaps more importantly, my scholarship has given me the freedom to follow my dreams and aspirations, free from financial pressures.”
–Stephen LaBrecque ’17
“Your donations help students travel for national moot court competitions, obtain critical hands-on experience with real-world cases through our clinics, pursue public interest summer jobs, and host important conferences on cutting-edge themes. Your investment in our faculty enables them to attain even greater success by traveling nationally and internationally in support of their research agendas.”
–R. Michael Cassidy
Professor and Rappaport Center Faculty Director
“There was a sense in the air when we were all [at BC Law] from ’65 to ’68 that human rights and civil rights get a priority. A sense that, as much as lawyers are devoted in so many fields of their work, doing this work is particularly important. The school set that tradition and it still does.”
–Walt Kelly ’68
Labor and civil rights lawyer who represented exonerated rapist and convicted murderer Steven Avery, the subject of the hit Netflix series Making a Murderer
“As a faculty member, I see firsthand the impact your gift will have on the lives of our students. Here they dive deeply into the law, surrounded by equally passionate scholars and guided by a shared commitment to justice. They become leaders not only in their communities but in the world—and the Law School Fund makes it happen.”
