Get Involved

Getting involved at TJSL is a way for alumni to create professional opportunities and make an impact on the law school. There are a variety of ways to get involved, from volunteering on the Alumni Association Board, serving on a committee, mentoring/hiring recent graduates and/or students, or assisting with organizing your regional alumni group.




The TJSL Alumni Association is dedicated to serving alumni by providing social, educational and professional opportunities, as well as supporting the law school's educational mission. Opportunities are available for alumni to serve on the Alumni Association Board of Directors or to serve on a volunteer committee.

    The MCLE committee plans monthly MCLEs with one-half hour mixers before the seminars. The committee determines the topic, the volunteer speaker, the date, and the location for the event.


    Social Committees

The Padres Game & Tailgate Party committee is responsible for providing food and drinks for the tailgate and helping engage alumni and students.
