Alumni

In its 120 years, the University of Colorado Law School has conferred more than 8,500 law degrees. Currently, Colorado Law's 7,000+ alumni live and work around the world, and work in every area of the law.

Home Sweet Home

Clearly, the appeal of Colorado is strong as two thirds of our alumni remain in or have returned to Colorado following graduation. Others are scattered throughout the United States, with the largest concentrations of alumni in California, Washington, Texas, New York, New Mexico, and Arizona. Arkansas has the fewest Colorado Law graduates within its borders (4 at last count). We have alumni in all 50 states, four U.S. territories, and 18 foreign countries.

If you have recently relocated, or if you are not hearing from us regularly, please make sure to RECONNECT with Colorado Law.

Alumni Publications

Amicus, Colorado Law's semi-annual alumni magazine, is mailed out to alumni in March and October of each year. If you have news to celebrate (job changes, promotions, awards, honors, marriages, new babies, etc.) let us know and we will include you in our next Class Actions section.

Law Points, Colorado Law's monthly e-newsletter, is e-mailed to alumni on the first business day of every month. Highlighting activities at Colorado Law as well as upcoming regional alumni events, Law Points is a terrfic way to stay connected to the law school. If you're not receiving Law Points, RECONNECT and we will add you to our distribution list.

The network reflects Colorado Law’s committed to supporting alumni throughout their careers.  By focusing on professional development opportunities, while also offering social and community service activities, Colorado Law will ensure the success of its alumni in fulfilling and challenging careers.

  • Free CLEs targeted to new lawyers.

JD/MBA

Since 1995, over 70 JD/MBA students have graduated from Colorado Law.  In an effort to engage this group of alumni and to further our commitment to connecting current JD/MBA students with mentors and career opportunities, Colorado Law periodically hosts networking receptions for JD/MBA students and alumni.  Alumni or students interested in helping to plan this year's event should contact Marci Fulton (marci.fulton@colorado.edu or 303-492-7015). 

 

Colorado Law Ambassadors

Engagement with our alumni and the legal community is one of our top priorities.  To foster this engagement and to maximize the effectiveness of our communications with our alumni, we have established the Colorado Law Ambassador Program. The role of a Colorado Law Ambassador is two-fold:

  • Spread the word to colleagues within your firm or office about exciting events, speakers, and professional development opportunities offered by Colorado Law. As an Ambassador, one of your responsibilities is to share that information more widely with your fellow alumni and colleagues at your firm.
  • Lead Law Firm Challenge efforts within your firm. A tradition in its third year, law firms with concentrations of Colorado Law alumni participate in the Law Firm Challenge.  A friendly and fun competition, the Law Firm Challenge is a campaign to drive 100% giving participation among Colorado Law alumni.  In its second year, 21 firms achieved 100% participation among their alumni.    

 If you are interested in becoming a Colorado Law Ambassador or wish to learn more, contact Marci Fulton, marci.fulton@colorado.edu.
