One of the most valuable ways for alumni to reconnect with BU Law is by volunteering. You can support our outstanding students in their course and career choices, expand your alumni network and recruit top students. Wherever you live or whatever your time constraints, we have a volunteer opportunity to match your interest.
Hire Our Students and Recent Graduates
If you know of any permanent, part-time, or summer positions available, post it on our online job listing system. Encourage your employer to interview on campus or to participate in our off-campus recruiting programs. Consider taking advantage of our In-House Counsel Fellowship Program or the Summer International Internship Program (if applicable). To help in any of these ways or to discuss what you can do to support the newest BU lawyers, contact the CDO (617-353-3141). More info
Mentor a First-Year Student
For over a decade, the Alumni/Student Mentoring Program has connected first-year students to School of Law alumni in the Boston area.

For more information and to volunteer for the Mentor Program, please email the Esdaile Alumni Center or call 617-353-3118. More info
Be a Resource for New Lawyers
Students and graduates can benefit from your knowledge and connections you are willing to share.

Be a Guest Speaker
There are numerous opportunities to share your area of expertise with students at special law school events.

Support the Public Interest Auction
Each year, the success of the Public Interest Auction is dependent on alumni involvement -- as attendees, bidders and contributors.

These funds underwrite the students interested in summer public interest jobs. Alumni interested in supporting the auction should contact the Public Interest Project (617-353-7255). More info
Join the Young Alumni Council
The Young Alumni Council (YAC) is Boston University School of Law's direct line to young alumni. It was created by young alumni to help the Esdaile Alumni Center better serve the needs and wants of the School's large young alumni (less than 10 years out) population both locally and nationally. To get involved or help start a chapter, contact the Esdaile Alumni Center (617-353-3118). More info
Connect with Alumni in your Area
Regional chapters help engage our alumni across the country by planning networking experiences, events and special programming.

Please consider hosting an event in your home or place of employment, or joining or establishing a local alumni chapter in your area. If you are interest in any of these opportunities, please contact the Esdaile Alumni Center (617-353-3118).
