Ways to Give Back and Volunteer
Alumni and friends contribute to the success of Maryland Carey Law by volunteering their time and expertise within our law school community. Your involvement is critical to the success of our mission in educating the future generation of lawyers, and we provide opportunities for you to inform, engage, mentor, and serve.

The Alumni Board is made up of about 40 graduate volunteers from the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law. Principal activities include promoting and recognizing the accomplishments of Maryland Carey Law and its alumni, assisting in preparing students for professional careers after graduation, and advancing the legal profession in Maryland and beyond. The board also selects the annual Alumni Award Recipients.
The Board of Visitors are distinguished alumni and friends who advise the Dean on topics ranging from proposals for new academic programs to the hiring of senior administrators to state and local political issues affecting the law school. Members of the Board also seek to advise the Maryland General Assembly, the Board of Regents, the University System of Maryland Chancellor and the University of Maryland Baltimore President on matters affecting the Law School.
The Golden Graduates Society celebrates all alumni who graduated from Maryland Carey Law fifty years ago or earlier. Aside from attending events, we are always looking for alumni who are interested in working with our office to brainstorm new ideas and serve in leadership roles for the Golden Graduates Society. There are several opportunities including participating in round table discussions, serving as a class agent to promote programs to your classmates, and serving as a co-chair for the Society. If you are interested in any of these opportunities, please email Jason Keller, director of alumni engagement, at email@example.com or call 410.706.5458.
Each year, Maryland Carey Law celebrates alumni celebrating milestone reunions during Alumni Weekend. Class Reunion Committee volunteers are the cornerstone of a successful reunion celebration. They share ideas with our office, spearhead outreach efforts to communicate important reunion dates and information with their classmates, and support efforts of our reunion giving program.
The Maryland Carey Law School Club is our philanthropic leadership recognition society comprised of leaders committed to sustaining the law school’s ability to educate future leaders and shape law and policy.
The Alumni Mentor Program connects first-year JD students with alumni who are practicing law and who are using their legal training in other professions. An alumni mentor is someone to whom a student can turn to for “real world” advice about navigating the first year of law school. While a mentor is not expected to be a potential employer, a mentor often may share tips and insights that help a mentee prepare for launching the job search.
