Loyola Connecting Points: An Alumni Outreach Program for Recent Graduates

Loyola Connecting Points provides alumni who have graduated within the past five years with an opportunity to network and learn from Loyola Law School's vast and talented alumni community. Each event, or "Connecting Point," will focus on a specific area of practice, topic of interest or affinity, and will be designed to further the professional development of our recent alumni and help them establish successful careers.

The goal of the outreach program is to provide a wide variety of connecting points, in small and personal settings, at which recent alumni can interact with experienced Loyola lawyers who have been practicing for more than 10 years or own their own firm.

Events can be formal or informal; some examples of Connecting Points include:

  • Shadow visits to a courtroom
  • Host breakfast, lunch or dinner at your office, a restaurant or your home
  • Q & A session during a law firm visit
  • Happy hour networking mixer
  • A day of golf or an evening in a luxury sporting suite

The following Connecting Points are currently open.  Please sign-up for only one event as there are limited spots available for each event.  Be courteous to your host and notify him/her, in the event you can not attend.  This will give others the opportunity to join.
