Sign Up for a Volunteer Opportunity

Alumni shaking hands at event

No matter where you live or work, there are a number of great ways for you to stay connected to Nebraska Law.

Alumni volunteers play a vital role in the success of the law school and your support makes it possible for us to provide diverse and valuable programs and services. Stay connected by serving in one of the many following ways and help bridge the gap between students and alumni.

Help Recruit Nebraska Law Students

The Nebraska Law Admissions Office recruits students from Nebraska and throughout the country. Sharing your past experience helps prospective students imagine what their experience could be like. If you are outside of Nebraska, we could use your help in connecting with students in your region, whether that's at a recruiting fair, meeting for coffee, or a quick phone conversation.

Volunteer Opportunities

Serve as a Mentor

Year-round mentoring provides students one hour per month with valuable connections to alumni, and helps them bridge the gap between theory and the practice of law.

Speak in a Current Class

Professors are often looking for alumni to present during a class session. Your real-life experiences can help students connect what they are learning in class to what they will face in practice.

Conduct Mock Interviews

The Career Development Office hosts on-campus interviews twice a year. You can help students prepare for these opportunities by conducting mock interviews and providing feedback.

Be a Competition Judge

Students practice their legal skills during the Allen and Grether Moot Court Competitions; Client Counseling Competitions; and trial team competitions. Competition judges listen to oral arguments and provide feedback that prepares students for future  practice.

Serve as a Speaker or Panelist During an Event

The College of Law hosts conferences, career exploration events, and other programs throughout the year. As a presenter, you will have the opportunity to connect with law students, other alumni and area professionals. 

Serve as a Reunion Class Agent

Each year, we celebrate specific classes during reunion weekend. As a class agent, you will connect with your classmates and encourage participation in events and reunion giving.
