Young Graduate Association

The Young Graduate Association is about making connections. We connect recent graduates with the University of Richmond School of Law's alumni family. We connect current law students to recent graduates. And we connect the community at large to the law school.

Law school graduates are considered "young grads" for six years following graduation. The Association currently has 23 members, with at least two members from each law school class. Our members are located from California to Virginia. They represent a cross-section of the law school's young alumni, and offer the perspectives and talents that are unique to recent graduates.

The Association is designed to provide educational, social and networking opportunities for young graduates. We support current students by volunteering for many law school programs such as Moot Court, negotiation and client counseling competitions, and mock interviews. We also participate in online chats with prospective students.

We organize young grad alumni events in different parts of the country to encourage networking and socializing. Additionally, we co-sponsor a luncheon for new students and host a barbecue for the graduating class. We encourage support of the annual fund and expanded membership in the de novo 1870 society, and we represent young alumni before the Law School Association Board. We welcome the opportunity to connect with you, too.  Please let us know how we can better represent you.
