UTLaw News Masthead 2008

September 2008

With this issue of the News we resume our regular monthly schedule.

Young Alumni Program

UT School of Law is launching a new Young Alumni Program, the goal of which is to provide unique opportunities for young alumni to connect with each other and with the School of Law. Who is a young alumni? You will be considered a young alumni until the end of your 10th year after graduation.

We want to know what you would like for your Law School to provide during your first ten years out, so we will be sending a survey to a number of you in the next few weeks. We will also be in touch about some inaugural programs and events planned just for you. Watch for special Young Alumni items every month in this newsletter.

In the meantime, please feel free to contact me with any questions or suggestions.
