Alumni/ae Association

Founded in 1974, the Alumni/ae Association exists to increase the number of actively engaged School of Law alumni/ae, to provide opportunities for graduates to interact and maintain relations with each other and the general School of Law community and to promote the public image and well-being of the School of Law.


The Alumni/ae Association board of directors consists of approximately 30 graduates who serve three-year terms. From time to time, one or more current Northeastern Law students are appointed to serve as student representatives to the board.
