Law Alumni

  • The School of Law partners with Discovering Justice to guide Duggan Middle School students for three months each summer, culminating in a mock trial in a real courtroom.

  • The annual Dean's Tea and Award Reception unites the School of Law community to celebrate student and faculty achievements. Each year, the celebration takes place the week of commencement in the Blake Law Center.

  • Western New England University School of Law partners with MassMutual Financial Group and the Just The Beginning Foundation, to bring forty high school students from greater Springfield to the Summer Legal Institute. Program activities are designed to motivate and encourage students on a path toward academic and personal success while immersing them in many aspects of the legal and judicial systems.


Our 8,000+ alumni can be found throughout the local bar and around the world. They serve in all aspects of the legal profession including private practice, the judiciary, the armed forces, government, nonprofits, law enforcement, academia, and business. Did you know that Western New England University School of Law has produced over 200 judges in its history?

Our alumni carry forward the sense of community that characterizes the School of Law by engaging with current students in many ways. Each year, hundreds of alumni give of their time and talent in service to the School of Law. Alumni serve as directors of the Alumni Board, mentors and panelists for events organized by our Career Services Office, coaches and guest judges for moot court, guest lecturers, bar mentors, class agents, and more.

We invite you to stay in touch and get involved with the School of Law and your fellow alumni. Connect with us!
