Volunteer Opportunities

Alumni and other friends play a critical role in the success of The Fowler School of Law. Wherever you live or whatever your time constraints, there is a volunteer opportunity that matches your interest.  Review the alumni volunteer opportunities listed below and complete our online form to indicate your interests.

+-Career Outreach

Career Advisory Network

The Career Advisory Network is an informational/networking tool for use by students and alumni seeking guidance as they explore career options.  The program allows students or alumni to contact volunteer alumni advisors and ask questions about particular practice areas, geographic dynamics, market trends, or obtain valuable career advice.  Volunteers are not contacted to solicit employment opportunities. Alumni from all across the country can serve as a part of the Career Advisory Network.

Mock Interview Program

Attorney interviewers help students to hone their interviewing skills by simulating the experience at the volunteer’s place of business.  At the conclusion of the interview, the student has the opportunity to receive vital feedback on communication skills, appearance, body language, and other factors which create an impression.  Attorney volunteers are asked to provide two mock interviews during a one-year period. When a student requests a mock interview, we will contact you to verify your general availability for the interview. If you are available, we will instruct our student to contact you directly to schedule a mutually convenient date and time for the interview. Our office will provide you with materials and information to assist you as an interviewer. Our Mentor Program begins in the spring of each year. If you would like to receive an invitation to participate in the program, please provide your contact information using our special mock interview volunteer form.

+-Student Outreach

Admissions

Alumni are encouraged to participate in our effort to recruit highly qualified students.  The strong endorsement of a graduate can play a critical role in a student deciding to attend Fowler School of Law. You can assist the Admissions Office by attending admissions events or talking to prospective students.

Panelist

Many student organizations host panels during the school year designed to educate students on particular areas of law or various career paths.  Students always value learning from alumni representing as wide a spectrum as possible: employer size; private vs. public employers; career changers; and different expertise levels.
 
Moot Court

Provide law students with opportunities to hone their pretrial, trial, and appellate skills. As judges, alumni can play a key role in the training of law students as future advocates. This can be an entertaining way to give back of your time while also supporting critical skill development for law students.

+-Alumni Outreach

Alumni Advisory Board

The Law Alumni Advisory Board seeks to build a lifelong relationship between alumni and The Fowler School of Law.  Through its events and programs the Law Alumni Advisory Board promotes professional, social and networking opportunities for alumni, helps raise funds to support critical needs, and assists in disseminating information to the alumni community.  

Fundraising

Invest yourself in the critical role of fund raising for Chapman University Fowler School of Law. Through your network of personal and professional contacts, you know others who will want to associate themselves with the winning spirit of Chapman Law. You can select a particular area of interest such as the great need for scholarships; you can focus your efforts on a clinic or program; or you can lend your support to the Amicus Fund, which provides the unrestricted dollars that allow Fowler School of Law to address its greatest needs of the time.

Alumni Receptions & Events

Bring together Chapman Law alumni by hosting/sponsoring a reception or event for alumni.  We are always looking for firms, companies or individuals to host events. This is a great way to get involved with alumni in your area and publicize the name of your firm or company.

MCLE Program Presenter

The Fowler School of Law provides free and low-cost MCLE units. If you have a specialty in which you would be interested in presenting, let us know.  We would like to learn more about your qualifications and arrange a time to discuss your proposed presentation.

Thank you for exploring volunteer opportunities!  Now that you have reviewed the list, please take a moment to complete our online form. A staff member, student or volunteer will follow up with you as appropriate.  We look forward to having you involved on a greater level!
