Volunteer Opportunities

If you want to give back to KU Law with your time and talent, there are many opportunities to mentor, serve, speak and supervise. We offer countless events that wouldn’t be possible without the dedication of alumni, and our students benefit from the experience and expertise that you bring to the table.

It’s easy to volunteer at KU Law. Below, find a list of annual events and positions that require alumni participation. Then, fill out the volunteer form indicating your interest in serving in one or more areas. We’ll contact you shortly to discuss the best fit for you.

Many alumni give back to the law school by contributing as speakers and panelists. Job panels focus on everything from rural and solo practice to judicial clerkships, and alumni are free to make suggestions about programs that would benefit students. Contact Stacey Blakeman for more information.

Mock interviewers are asked to come for a two hour timeslot, wherein they meet with up to four students for 30 minutes with each student: 20 minutes for the interview and 10 minutes for the critique. The entire process is videotaped, so Career Services can review the interview with the student and offer constructive criticism and identify and reinforce their strengths.
