The second largest alumni population for the School of Law is in Connecticut. Back in June,
the Connecticut Bar Association held its annual conference. As a way to connect with the law
alumni, the dean hosted a breakfast prior to the start of the conference. Alumni such as Ellen
Carter ’81 and The Hon. Winoa Zimberlin ’80 stopped by to network and catch up with him.
Updated several times a week, the School of Law LinkedIn page features articles
and information about our alumni, School of Law events, and current students.
