The Law Development and Law Alumni Relations Offices currently employ six full-time staff. Our goals are to promote Santa Clara Law among our alumni by encouraging participation in giving to the law school and by creating a sense of community among our alumni through local and regional events, reunions, and activities.

We are available to serve our alumni and donors by providing giving options and services at any time throughout the year. We are always looking for new events and activities and openly encourage our alumni to be involved in hosting local and regional events.  Contact us with your thoughts, questions, nominations, etc., at
