Alumni & Friends

About Alumni & Friends

The UNT Dallas College of Law Alumni & Friends network was founded in 2017 by members of the first graduating classes from the law school in conjunction with the College of Law and the UNT Dallas Foundation. Our mission is simple:

To engage all alumni and friends of UNT Dallas College of Law for life.


If you are a graduate or former student (both are alumni), a long-time supporter, or a new friend interested in staying engaged through the Alumni & Friends organization, please create or update your profile online.


Beginning with the Inaugural Class seated in 2014, the law students who chose UNT Dallas College of Law for their legal education have proven to be special individuals. Year after year, our students reflect the law school’s goal of widening access to legal education through creating a student population richly inclusive across age, gender, life experience, race and ethnicity, and socio-economic background. We expect that our alumni will carry their unique law school educational experiences forward and continue to value inclusiveness, service to the community, innovation, and especially, civility and professionalism.


Although the official Alumni & Friends network was created by graduates in 2017, UNT Dallas College of Law acknowledges and is profoundly grateful for the support our students and our institution have received from the community, from the time before our first classes were held, then during our groundbreaking first academic years, and now going forward. There has been, and will continue to be, a very important role for “Friends” – those supporters who share our vision - participating as donors, mentors, volunteers, and advocates, whether graduates of this law school or not.

To all those friends who have come together to support and enhance our effort, and to those new friends we hope to gain over time, we acknowledge that the success of our students and of our mission is inextricably linked to your contribution. Thank you, one and all.


As a young law school, the willingness of alumni and friends to engage with our students, advocacy programs, Community Lawyering Centers, Law Review, student organizations and other programs creates unique opportunities to make profound, positive impacts at UNT Dallas College of Law. We have new programs and activities each year which can use helpful participation from alumni and friends. Learn more.
