Welcome Letter from LAA President Katrina James '07
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.
There are many ways in which the Law Alumni Association can help you stay engaged such as:
- LAA/LACA/Public Interest Law Center (PILC) Benefit – This event is held in February and in collaboration with PILC, this networking reception raises funds for students who choose to work in public interest over the summer. We also celebrate the Law School community’s commitment to public service by recognizing the accomplishments of alumni working in public interest including those dedicated to pro bono work.
- Recent Graduate Programming – These events held throughout the 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.
Katrina James ’07
President, NYU Law Alumni Association
