Get Involved

6 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. Applications to serve as a mentors for the 2018-19 academic year are currently being accepted.

  2. Serve as a moot court judge.
    Upcoming moot court volunteer opportunities are at the Grether Moot Court Competition, Allen Moot Court Comeptition and the Trial Team Competition. For more information, or to volunteer, contact Molly Brummond at
  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. Serve as a network for our students and career development office.
    Contact our career development office 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.
  5. 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!

  6. Donate.
    The College of Law has benefited tremendously from the generosity of our alumni and friends. Excellent students are able to study here because they receive scholarships funded by private support. Nebraska Law students participate in competitions, attend programs and lectures, and receive awards for their efforts – all because our alumni and friends make it possible. We recruit talented faculty from across the country who teach in state-of-the-art classrooms because of funds we receive from people who believe in our mission to produce outstanding lawyers. In the last ten years, private financial support has built new classrooms, beautifully renovated our auditorium, and most recently funded a new addition that will house our clinical and experiential learning programs.
