In This Issue


A Letter to Alumni from the Dean

Dear BU Law Alumni,

maureen o'rourkeAs we begin the new year, I want to thank you for all your efforts to help our talented graduates find their first legal positions, and ask that you continue to assist members of the Class of 2012 who are still seeking employment in this challenging market. While we report employment data for all graduates as of February 15 to the American Bar Association for accreditation purposes, we encourage you to hire BU Law graduates whenever a professional opportunity becomes available.

During the past year, we have initiated many efforts to include you in assisting our new graduates in securing their first legal positions. We thank you for your responses and championing of this important issue. Yet, there remains more to do. If you know of any job positions or if you are able to hire a recent graduate, please contact Maura Kelly, assistant dean for career development and public service, at or send a job posting to

Thank you and we will soon be reaching out to you about the Class of 2013. We have started a mentoring program for recent graduates and 3Ls to complement our 1L mentoring program. If you are willing to participate, again, please contact Maura Kelly at
