STL Holds First Alumni Advisory Board Meeting
On October 14, 12 alumni representatives from different classes assembled in Shenzhen for STL’s first Alumni Advisory Board meeting. Established last year, the Alumni Advisory Board is an important advisory forum that represents the interest of alumni, and connects STL and alumni with STL’s progress. Dean Philip McConnaughay and STL’s senior administrative team made presentations and responded to questions and suggestions during the meeting.
STL’s administration provided detailed reports on developments and achievements in admissions and student recruiting, J.M. and J.D. curriculum development, faculty appointments, career placement, communications, international programs and exchanges, fund-raising, the creation of new opportunities for STL graduates access to U.S. bar examinations and admission to practice, and the recognition of STL’s 10th Anniversary.
The Advisory Board weighed in with many valuable suggestions regarding all of these matters, and with specific commitments to help – and enlist other alumni to help – with all law school objectives. The Board and STL administration are planning a major 10th Anniversary celebration weekend for Spring Semester 2019.
