In October of 2012, the federal Legal Services Corporation published the Report of the Pro Bono Task Force and described the Pro Bono Collaborative as "one great example of how much can be accomplished through collaboration."
Law Alumni Association
Dear fellow alumni,
I am excited to write to you as President of the Roger Williams University School of Law Alumni Association. Our law school has grown tremendously in terms of both its curriculum and its reputation in the legal and academic communities since its inception almost 20 years ago. The principal reason RWU Law has done so well so quickly is through the strength of its alumni.
The Law Alumni Association is active in keeping the alumni updated and involved with the law school. I encourage you to attend one of our many events and take advantage of what the Law Alumni Association has to offer. We regularly host alumni networking events, including lunches, after-hours functions, regional alumni receptions and our annual holiday reception. We also sponsor free CLE programs, a Toys-for-Tots drive, and the popular annual golf tournament.
It is important for RWU Law’s continued growth that our alumni stay connected with the law school. One of our initiatives this year is the RWU Law Alumni Online Community (http://lawalumni.rwu.edu), which is a free benefit to all alumni. Once you log onto the password protected online directory you can (1) find out what your old friends and classmates are doing professionally and personally by contacting them directly from the site; (2) send and receive referrals to and from other RWU Law alums; (3) sign up for a variety of alumni volunteer opportunities; and (4) build your professional profile through the Professional Networking Center; among other benefits.
Another effective way to stay connected with RWU Law is by making a gift to the Annual Fund. Any contribution is helpful, whether it is $5 or $500. The success of the law school is measured by the number of alumni who participate. The more alumni who give to the school, the stronger the law school will become. And, in turn, the more valuable our degrees will be.
I look forward to working with you this year. If you have any ideas or suggestions for the Alumni Board, please write to me at email@example.com.
