A Reminder Message Regarding Admissions Alumni Phone Campaign and Lawyer Search from Kate Nilan ('06) and Laura Hammargren ('08)
As we all know in the legal profession, follow-up phone calls can make all the difference. As it turns out, it is the same with admitted St. Thomas Law students. Admitted applicants often have many questions that alums can answer best (can I really get a job after graduation? is the education at St. Thomas different?). We would love to have a network of alums to make welcome calls to admitted law school applicants beginning in mid-January. This alumni phone campaign will run through April. If you are willing to call a small number of admitted applicants for the Campaign, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line, “Alumni Phone Campaign”. You will receive follow-up information in mid-January.

Networks Available of Law Graduates
The Office of Alumni Relations continues to expand the on-line network resources available to our law graduates. Most recently we added a Linkedin Group for Solo and Small Firm practitioners so questions and information may be shared between fellow law graduates. Alumni Relations would like to remind you to register a profile on UST Law Lawyer Search. Lawyer Search is not only a valuable resource for those practicing in the traditional sense, but also for those in non-traditional roles. Lawyer Search provides an opportunity to find graduates that are working in specific states or serving a specific legal or business need. Register today!
