Get Involved

BC Law stands out from other law schools because of its commitment to serving others and giving back. These Jesuit ideals are shared by many of our students, and it makes sense that this spirit of giving remains an important part of the lives of many of our alumni long after they graduate. BC Law relies on the help of alumni to ensure that its community continues to grow and prosper. Learn more about how you can serve your class or the BC Law community more broadly through one of our committees or leadership opportunities. 

Serve on the Alumni Board

Alumni Board

Board members work with the Law School administrators to help serve the needs of both the school and our alumni. Elected by the Alumni Assembly, which includes the alumni volunteers for BC Law, members of the Alumni Board serve two-year terms. Responsibilities include raising the national profile of the school, assisting the school with attaining its career placement and admissions goals, providing guidance and assistance with strengthening our alumni community, and inspiring peers to provide financial support to the school.

Signature Events

Reunion Committees

Committee members play a key role in contributing to each reunion’s success by generating interest in the reunion weekend, planning events, promoting attendance, and encouraging classmates to participate in their Class Gift. Committees are formed the year before your reunion, and each member contributes on average two hours per month. By serving on your reunion committee, you help ensure that your entire class will enjoy a memorable gathering while building stronger ties to the school.

To join the Reunion committee, contact Christine Kelly '97, director, alumni relations and donor engagement, at 617-552-4378 or bclaw.alumni@bc.edu.

Law Day Committee

A signature event for alumni, Law Day celebrates the best of BC Law while also raising financial support for student scholarships. Committee members review nominations for our community’s highest annual awards and secure corporate or firm sponsorships for the event. By participating on this esteemed committee, you provide a valuable service to BC Law and elevate our tradition of excellence.

To join the Law Day committee, contact Christine Kelly '97, director, alumni relations and donor engagement, at 617-552-4378 or bclaw.alumni@bc.edu.

Promote BC Law

GOLD Alumni

GOLD alumni are BC Law’s Graduates of the Last Decade. As BC Law plans more events to unite this community, we are looking for ideas and assistance to make these gatherings a success. To volunteer, contact Christine Kelly '97, director, alumni relations and donor engagement, at 617-552-4378 or bclaw.alumni@bc.edu.

Class Agents

Strengthen the cohesion of your class! Class agents provide an important communication link between alumni and BC Law. Our dedicated agents keep classmates connected to one another and share updates on important personal, professional, and law-school-related news. In collaboration with the advancement staff, class agents play a critical role in encouraging their peers to make BC Law a philanthropic priority.

Does your class have a class agent? To nominate a classmate or volunteer yourself, contact Christine Kelly '97, director, alumni relations and donor engagement, at 617-552-4378 or bclaw.alumni@bc.edu.

Ambassadors

Build community at your firm! BC Law ambassadors promote the school at law firms where there is a significant alumni presence. Ambassadors serve as advocates for the school by providing perspective on the changing legal industry, mentoring and recruiting students within their firms, and partnering with the advancement staff to promote philanthropic support for BC Law.

Firms with an active ambassador host one to two annual informational gatherings at their offices with the dean, a faculty member, or student leaders.

To volunteer, contact Christine Kelly '97, director, alumni relations and donor engagement, at 617-552-4378 or bclaw.alumni@bc.edu.

Mentor

Share your knowledge and advice! The 1L Mentor Program matches first-year students with alumni volunteers in their desired city and practice area. Alumni are a powerful resource in the job search process, and the mentoring relationship provides our students with an invaluable opportunity to gain insight into the legal community where they hope to practice.

To volunteer, contact Christine Kelly '97, director, alumni relations and donor engagement, at 617-552-4378 or bclaw.alumni@bc.edu.

Judge Competitions

You be the judge—how well-prepared are BC Law students for the negotiations and trials that will define their careers? Our students participate in four in-house competitions: Negotiations (early autumn), Mock Trial (late autumn), Client Counseling (late winter), and Moot Court (spring). For more information, contact Rosemary Daly ’87, manager, advocacy programs, at 617-552-0536 or rosemary.daly@bc.edu.
