Welcome Letter from LAA President Joseph E. Ehrlich ’97
NYU School of Law is a world-class institution in every respect. It is a unique place where great scholarship and innovation meet dedicated public service and leading private practice, forming a vibrant academic and alumni community. Be assured that your Law Alumni Association is at the center of that community.
The Board of Directors of the Law Alumni Association is comprised of a dedicated group of fellow graduates who represent your interests and are committed to providing a vast array of interesting activities and services. Your Law Alumni Association recently expanded its committee structure and now has 11 committees working to serve the needs of our current students and extensive alumni network. In particular, our committees will now cover two new areas of significant interest: career planning/placement and mentoring.
In addition, there are many ways in which the Law Alumni Association can help you stay engaged such as:
- Fall Conference – held every November, featuring current legal issues and thought-provoking leaders drawn from our teaching and alumni community and giving you the opportunity for free CLE
- Alumni Luncheon – held at the end of January and provides a great way to reconnect with friends and colleagues
- Recent Graduate Programming – monthly happy hour on the third Wednesday of each month and various other events held through year to provide recent graduates with an opportunity to informally socialize and network
I hope that you will decide to get involved or stay involved in some way with the Law School and the Law Alumni Association. We are all the beneficiaries of wonderful alumni who preceded us, and this is our opportunity to “pay it forward.” I am honored to serve as President of the Association in carrying on their work and creating new ways to support alumni and the Law School.
Please let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you soon at one of our events.
Joseph E. Ehrlich ’97
President, NYU Law Alumni Association
