The Alumni Ambassadors program identifies and engages a select group of Santa Clara Law’s most enthusiastic and supportive alumni each year to serve as a liaison for the community. This is a volunteer leadership role offering support to enhance and enrich the current Santa Clara Law student experience as well as support to connect alumni in the area through occasional events and communications. If you’d like to be considered for the program, please provide your contact information to the public Law Alumni directory. If you’d prefer not to grant your contact information in order to access the directory, you can reach out to the Law Alumni office for assistance at (408) 551-1748 or
