D2, Implement a Best Practice Alumni Engagement Capability:

College of Law

Development/Alumni Relations

Compared to the previous fiscal year, the College of Law annual fund has seen a significant increase of 50 percent, with a 50 percent increase in the participation rate, most of which was a direct result of the Stetson Law Challenge.

The Department of Development and Alumni Relations arranged a trip to Washington, D.C., for the swearing in of several College of Law alumni before the United States Supreme Court. The dean moved their admission in open court before the court heard arguments in a patent case.

The alumni also attended a lunch hosted by the College of Law. The law alumni chapters have proven a popular means of reconnecting many alumni to the College of Law. There are currently 12 active alumni chapters in and outside of the State of Florida.
