The Young Alumni Association (YAA) Board is made up of two representatives from each graduating class in the past ten years. The YAA itself is made up of all graduates in the corresponding time frame. The YAA engages in several projects throughout the year, with members of the board leading various committees, and is a vital component in all aspects of the S.J. Quinney College of Law.
Some of those committees include:
- Mock Interviews
- Spring Firm Crawl
- Barbara Dickey Scholarship Fundraiser
- Student Dinner Dates with Scholarships
- Law School to Lawyer
Additionally, a new committee has formed to support the Annual Utah Law Awards Dinner. The YAA members of the committee join the college’s Board of Trustees, members of staff, and others to plan the Annual Awards Dinner.
Each of these committees participates in activities and is directed by the YAA Board in conjunction with various offices at the college. The Board meets once a month, from August to May, either in person or virtually. The committees have ad hoc meetings to discuss their ongoing projects.
The YAA would love your participation. If you want to be actively involved, contact Lori Nelson, Director of Alumni Relations, at Lori.Nelson@law.utah.edu or 801-641-0300.
