Legal Employer Alumni Relations/Programs Section

The Legal Employer Alumni Relations/Programs Section is intended to include NALP members who have an interest in or responsibility for alumni related issues. We realize many of your jobs are evolving and our positions now encompass tasks related to building alumni networks, recruiting through alumni, and offering continued development and training to alumni. Our goal is to bring together peers who seek to collaborate for purposes of learning more about this growing field and to contribute to gaining knowledge and resources for the benefit of NALP members. We will conduct research on our own industry and other industry models to develop best practices and guidelines.
