Regional Alumni Chapters
Stay Connected, Strengthen Your Ties, Get Involved

Regional Alumni Chapters play a vital role in keeping alumni involved with and informed about USD School of Law through year-round programming and alumni engagement opportunities including a variety of social, educational and cultural events. Creating and strengthening Regional Alumni Chapters to support geographically based groups of USD law alumni is a top priority of the Law Alumni Association.

Chapters are run by volunteers comprised of local alumni leaders who act as ambassadors for the law school by serving as Regional Alumni Representatives on a Chapter Executive Board. USD’s Law Alumni Association Board of Directors provides leadership, guidance, and resources in support of Regional Alumni Chapters and works closely with Chapter leaders to:

  • Connect alumni of USD School of Law School (more than 14,000 worldwide)
  • Provide career networking opportunities
  • Promote an ongoing relationship between alumni and the university
  • Engage current and prospective students
  • Increase the visibility of USD School of Law in the region

There are no membership fees to be a part of a Regional Alumni Chapter. Regional event emails are targeted by zip code so please update your contact information to receive email invitations for alumni events in your region.
