Volunteer

Much of what we do at the Faculty of Law depends on our energetic and engaged alumni community. From mentoring students to officiating mooting competitions, there are many opportunities for our alumni to give back to the faculty through volunteering on behalf of our students and your fellow alumni.

As community and professional leaders with ties to our faculty, you are among our greatest assets, and we would love to hear from you. If you have ideas of ways you’d like to help our students and enhance our programming, please contact us.

Canadian Bar Association

UAlberta Law is a proud supporter of the Canadian Bar Association’s mentorship program, which has helped support innumerable students and young lawyers in their professional development. Our students benefit from the opportunity to meet with a mentor while completing their studies, learning more about their future career.
