Get Involved

7 ways you can be involved and stay connected

  1. Be a mentor.
    Mentoring serves as a bridge between the theory and the practice of law. Students learn by example from mentors who care deeply about improving law and its administration, have high expectations for themselves and their colleagues in the profession, and are willing to help guide those who follow them into the profession. You can help students consider what type of career they would like to pursue, what classes to take, and provide overall professional development advice. This is a great way to make a difference in the life of a student and engage with the College no matter where you are located. The next round of mentoring matches will be in August 2014. Contact Molly Brummond at molly.brummond@unl.edu for more information.
  2. Serve as a moot court judge.
    Upcoming moot court volunteer opportunities are at the Grether Moot Court Competition and the Animal Law Closing Argument Competition in the fall. For more information, or to volunteer, contact Molly Brummond at molly.brummond@unl.edu.
  3. Attend an event.
    The College of Law social calendar is always a full one – tailgates, reunions, lectures and more. Come back and visit with other alumni, meet our current students, and engage with the College!
  4. Give advice to today’s students.
    It’s never been so easy to offer insights about life after law school and what it takes to find a fulfilling career. Alumni answers to our “If I Would Have Known Then What I Know Now” questions are included in a weekly newsletter for students.
  5. Serve as a network for our students and career services department.
    Contact our career services department to connect with a student who is interested in what you do, or to provide job leads. Our students are always looking to talk to alumni in different legal markets and in specific practice areas.
  6. Let us know what you’re doing.
    Update your contact information here so that we are able to keep in touch, share a story about yourself or other alumni to appear on our website, in The Nebraska Transcript, the alumni print magazine, and submit a classnote to share your news and keep your classmates updated!
