How to Get Involved
It is important both as a student and as an alumnus to stay involved in the UIC Law community. As a student, staying involved will help you make a smooth transition into the legal world after graduation. As an alumnus, staying involved will help you thrive in your career. Below are some ways that you can get and stay involved as both a student and an alumnus.
National and Local Bar Associations Heading link
National and local bar associations are also an incredible resource for students and alumni.
Students can often become members at a discounted rate and then are given access to bar association resources and events. Networking is vitally important for law students throughout their time in school and beyond. Bar associations often offer incredible opportunities to network and meet practicing attorneys in the community. The sooner you get involved, the better.
Alumni can grow their practices, gain hours of continuing legal education, stay on top of developments in their respective practice areas and socialize. The benefits are endless. Join your local and national bar associations today.
