Young Alumni Steering Committee

The Young Alumni Steering Committee is creating a network across the US that is a resource for alumni, students, and the Law School. This requires the committee to work closely with the Alumni, Career Services, and Admissions offices to provide networking opportunities for young alumni while creating soft landings for recent graduates. The YAC also works closely with the Admissions Office to help attract and recruit prospective students.
