Get Involved

There are many ways for alumni and friends of Penn State Law to get involved with our school, including our mentor program, career panels, IP clinic, and recruiting opportunities for employers. If you are interested in getting involved, please contact our Alumni Relations Office at or our Career Services Office at

Alumni Mentor Program

As an alumnus/a, you are in a unique position to help Penn State Law students reach their career goals by acting as a mentor. The Mentor Program is an opportunity for first-year students to develop a relationship with an experienced attorney who can provide advice about challenges that arise in one’s first year of law school and in entering the legal profession.  While being a mentor does not require a large investment of time on your part, your advice and guidance will be invaluable to a first-year law student. Whether you are an alumnus/a of University Park, Carlisle or another law school altogether, your support and guidance will be an invaluable part of Penn State Law students’ experience and we hope you will be able to participate. 

For more information, please email

Alumni Career Panels

The Career Services Office hosts a variety of career panels throughout the course of the year, covering topics ranging from energy law to lawyers in government positions to tips and guidance for preparing students to succeed during their summer internships. These panels are not possible without the help and support of our alumni. If you are eager to get involved with Penn State Law and are looking for a way to help, participation on career panels is a great way to lend a hand. These panels are also a very good excuse to come back and visit campus!
