In this edition you will get a sense of the busy end-of-school-year pace at Arizona Law.

But we are already looking forward to next fall's Homecoming Weekend celebrations at the UA and the College of Law, and our 2019 reunions. 

Homecoming starts exactly 6 months from today, October 31 through November 2. Mark your calendars now and get ready to book those flights and hotel rooms! Help us reach our best attendance yet at our 2019 Arizona Law Homecoming events.

Our alumni office is also looking for volunteers from each of our reunion years to begin planning memorable class gatherings. Find out more in this edition, or plan to roll some reunion ideas our way in person at Gutter Bowl on June 4.
Until the footnotes,

Connect with Arizona Law's Clerkship Community

On average, over 20 percent of our graduates go on to judicial clerkships annually -- that's more than twice the national average.

We want to keep these numbers strong. The college's Career Development Office would like to hear from all of our graduates who have clerked for federal, tribal, and state court judges. Our intent is to connect alumni with students interested in clerking for the same judge or court.

If you have clerked and are willing to help with this project, please fill out our clerkship survey here. We will not provide your information to students without your permission.

Please contact Heather Zapata in the Career Development Office with any questions.
