Get Involved

LSJ alumni continue to have an impact on communities beyond UW. They are engaged, passionate, and service oriented. Our alumni are well connected to the department and continue to support current LSJ students in various ways. If you'd like to stay connected with the Law, Societies, and Justice program, join our LinkedIn group, like our Facebook page, follow us on Instagram, or join our Mailing List.

If you’re an LSJ alumni looking to get involved, contact us at to be a part of any of the opportunities below:  

Learning from Failure

This is a two-credit course focused on learning from failure. Each session consists of a presentation by LSJ alumni, each of whom describe their career trajectory, with a special focus on those key moments when failure became the foundation for a positive shift in mindset and opportunity. Through those presentations and class discussions, students will learn how to persevere in the face of obstacles, and how to develop the resilience necessary for long-term success in any career field.

LSJ Career Nights 

LSJ Alumni discuss their career trajectory, the rewards and challenges, and how they prepared for it in a panel discussion with current students. 

LSJ Gap Year Panel

LSJ alumni discuss how and why they decided to take a gap year(s) in between undergrad and grad school and how that decision impacted their future career trajectory in a panel discussion with current students. 

LSJ Day of Service 

LSJ Day of Service provides an annual opportunity for local alumni and current students to give back to the Downtown Emergency Service Center. The Day of Services occurs each year in February.

Friends of LSJ

Friends of LSJ is an alumni board focused on building a strong alumni network and providing a supportive community for students. The board provides advice to the Chair on how to better interact with alums, and how more generally to improve the Department. Additionally, the board will assist in philanthropic efforts to help provide the financial resources needed to support for LSJ students.
