Get Involved

The Law Alumni Network organises a range of different events and programs throughout the year.  Look out for the following events in early 2014:

  • Student Alumni Networking Breakfast
    • Come and chat with current students over a coffee with the Dean and fellow alumni at our CBD campus. This is a great way to network and hear about new developments within the school as well as an excellent opportunity for current students to get an idea of where our alumni are working now.  We encourage you to embrace this chance to give back by offering a bit of your time to mentor and advise current students on your own experiences and choices you made post graduation.
  • Look Who’s Talking
    • The UNSW Law Alumni's  Look Who’s Talking  series examines the different life and career experiences of our alumni working in numerous positions across the legal, financial, government or business sectors.  This event is a great resource and offers a wealth of information on the different types of career paths you may take with a Law degree.  Each series hosts a new topic so take advantage of this opportunity and stay tuned for what’s to come!
  • Hal Wootten Lecture
    • The annual Hal Wootten Lecture was established in 2006 by UNSW Law in honour of founding dean, Emeritus Professor Hal Wootten. This annual lecture is usually given by a lawyer, judge, former high court justice or professor who is globally renowned in his or her field.  This lecture is often a highlight of the year and commemorates Hal Wootten's founding vision for the Law School.
  • Drinks and Gatherings throughout the year
    • Check out this video of our most recent event.

Be Invested

As UNSW Law Alumni we recognise our responsibility as leaders among our peers.  Each year Law graduates continue to inspire us with the work they do and the creative ways they give back to the university and community.  Check out the Open Doors Campaign our alumni have started.  The campaign has raised tens of thousands of dollars to go towards annual law scholarships for students from disadvantaged backgrounds.  What can you do to inspire people and give back?  It could be student mentoring, judging competitions or attending a speakers’ forum.  We’d love to hear from you at our next alumni event!

All graduates of UNSW Law are members of the Alumni Network.  Previous UNSW Law staff are also eligible to join.

Alumni membership is free, and entitles you to participate in the activities and services.
