Each year, the GW Law hosts two major events to welcome alumni back to the law school.
Fall- Alumni Weekend is an opportunity for all alumni to visit. There are interest-group based events, lectures, tours, and receptions for you to connect with faculty, students and fellow alums.
Summer- Reunion features class-specific events, tours of the law school, faculty lectures, and family activities. The weekend culminates in the Class Dinner & Alumni Awards presentation at an exclusive location in Washington, DC.

The Career Center's staff members are available to meet in person or to speak with graduates by phone. We are happy to discuss resume and cover letter preparation, interviewing tips and preparation, job search and career-related resources, job search strategies, networking, informational interviewing, and any other issues of interest to graduates. Keri McCoy counsels JD alumni who are at least one year post graduation. All other alumni should contact the Career Center to be referred to the appropriate counselor.
To schedule an appointment or mock interview either in-person or by phone, please contact the Career Center at 202-994-7340 or email@example.com.
The National Association for Law Placement (NALP) publishes a directory of legal employers every year. This directory is available through the Alumni Community (login required) and provides information on member firms, including firm profiles, contacts, salary information, hours, benefits, demographics, hiring criteria, and other valuable data for students and alumni. Students and graduates may search legal employers that fit certain criteria by doing an "Advanced Search." Additionally, students and alumni may export data from the NALP Directory of Legal Employers into an Excel document to use for mail merge purposes. You must be a registered user of the Alumni Community to access this feature.
Alumni may participate in special interest groups. These groups reflect the interests and makeup of GW Law's diverse alumni volunteers, and provide the impetus for various initiatives, activities, and events.
All Law School alumni are also automatically members of the George Washington Alumni Association (GWAA), which includes alumni from all schools within the University. Membership in the GWAA entitles you to additional alumni benefits.
