Students: Become a Colorado Law Ambassador

September 9, 2011

Who are the Colorado Law Ambassadors?

The Colorado Law Ambassadors are students who represent the Law School to alumni, employers, other professionals in the community, and prospective students at events hosted by the Dean’s Office, Admissions, and Career Development. 

 

Why should students become Colorado Law Ambassadors?

Involvement in this program gives students the opportunity to network and make contacts in the community with people whom they otherwise might not meet.  It is also a chance for students to serve as the face of the Law School and engage with senior Law School administrators.  Duties may include: participating on panels, introducing speakers, registering and greeting guests, giving law school tours, and assisting with event set-up and wrap-up.  In the future, there also may be opportunities to travel on behalf of the Law School to regional events.  Those students who serve as Ambassadors will be invited to attend the Law Alumni Banquet in the spring and be thanked by Dean Weiser for their service with a dinner at the end of the year.

 

What commitment is required?

Students who commit to serve as Ambassadors must attend a Colorado Law Ambassadors orientation, and act as Ambassadors for at least two events in the fall semester and two events in the spring semester.  

 

What type of students is the Law School looking for?

Colorado Law Ambassadors must exemplify maturity, integrity, and professionalism.  Students do not need to be gregarious or outgoing.  They need only be eager to engage with professionals and willing to help.  This program encourages applications from students who are uncomfortable with networking, but would like to improve their networking skills.
