It's been a fantastic week meeting with alums as we kick off our summer tour of alumni receptions.  A few weeks ago we started in New York City.  Last week we had a great reception and many opportunities for conversations at the Arizona Bar Convention and now I am up in the Pacific Northwest.

If you are near a reception, we hope you will join us. And if you'd like to help organize a gathering of alumni this fall, please let us know.  The full summer schedule is included below. 

Until the footnotes,

Arizona Law at the State Bar Convention
This year, Arizona Law co-sponsored the 2017 State Bar of Arizona Convention. It was a wonderful opportunity to speak with Arizona Law alumni and supporters attending the convention, and spread the word about upcoming employer events and hiring our talented students.

We also held our annual convention reception, where we welcomed more than 60 alumni and friends. 

Thank you to everyone who attended, stopped by the booth, or reached out! It is always a pleasure to see so many alumni and friends of our college at the convention. 

Portland Reception

A special thanks to Melissa Healy ('09) and  Stoel Rives for hosting our Portland Reception. It was great to catch up with friends in the beautiful city of Portland. 

Meeting with Wayne Godare ('71),
a bankruptcy trustee in Portland.

Some of our dedicated Portland alumni who attended last year's reception. 
This year's was at the beautiful new Stoel Rives offices, but 
I was so busy mingling with our guests that I forgot to snap a photo!

While residents of Eugene, where I was on Monday, and of Portland say they find the days a little warm, they (obviously) have little idea what counts as warm.  This week, at least, I'd be glad to bring some of the NW weather back to Tucson!

Arizona Law Reunions and Homecoming, October 26-28, 2017
Arizona Law is in the midst of helping our 2017 reunion committees plan a weekend of reunions, Homecoming events, BBQs, and seats for the UA homecoming football game.
Reunion committees have so far been formed by the Classes of 1967, 1977, 1992, and 2007. 

We invite members of other classes from years ending in 2 or 7 to form reunion committees and receive logistical support through the Alumni and Development Office. The deadline for forming a committee to work with the college is June 30.
The college will also host an all-year reunion reception on Friday, October 27.
For more information or to participate in a class reunion committee for your year, please contact Marissa White in the Alumni and Development Office by calling 520-626-8132 or via email at

Support Future Lawyers With Your Gift  to the Law College Association

2017 Richard Grand Argument Competitors
Alumni are the hallmark of the College of Law. Your participation and support -- in events, mentorship, and giving -- provides opportunities for the next generation. 

As we prepare to close our fiscal year on June 30, 2017, we ask you to consider making a gift to the College of Law -- In Favor of Students. All gifts matter, regardless of size, and help us deliver on our promise of a high-value, top-quality education, in a small, supportive community.

Tucson broke some temperature records this week.  
As Chris Gast in our development office reminds me from his days in the JD program, you can always escape the Arizona heat in the law library. To quote Chris, "nothing says cool like the stacks." 
Stay hydrated and Bear Down!
Warmly (truly),

Shaping the next century of legal education
