Fall 2018

Meet with law students this football season

As Notre Dame Lawyers, many of us can name alumni who helped us with advice, encouragement, and mentorship in the early stages of our careers. When you return to campus this fall for a football weekend, please consider helping the next generation of Notre Dame Lawyers by interacting with the Law School's students.

Here are a couple of ways you can participate.

Speak on Football Fridays

The Student Bar Association is organizing panels of Notre Dame Lawyers to speak about their careers on the Fridays before home football games. The panels will be held during the lunch hour, and lunch will be served. This invitation is open to lawyers from all practice areas. If you are interested, click on the button below to fill out a form and see contact information for the organizers.
Sign up: Football Friday Panels

Football Meet & Greets

Another student-led initiative is the Alumni Ambassador Program's Football Meet & Greets. The goal is to create opportunities for students to meet alumni from their target markets. A Meet & Greet is intended to be informal and social. It can be as simple as grabbing a coffee on Friday afternoon or having a beer at a tailgate on Saturday. If you are interested, click on the button below to fill out a survey.
