Welcome, Ole Miss Law School Alumni
Welcome to the Alumni and Friends portion of the University of Mississippi School of Law’s website! We hope this page will be another avenue for our alumni and friends to stay up-to-date on news, events, and ways to connect to the School of Law.
It is an exciting time to be a part of the University of Mississippi School of Law family. Our program is the strongest it’s ever been in my decades-long association with the school. Please take time to look at the website and learn about the new and exciting things happening here. We are achieving new records in faculty and student scholarship, advocacy programs, and clinical work.
Connecting our on-campus family – faculty, students and staff – with our off-campus family is critical to our ongoing success. I would like to encourage you to get involved by attending a Law Alumni Event, joining the Lamar Order, or simply staying up to date on law school news by visiting this page often.
If you have questions about an upcoming alumni event, please contact Scott Thompson, the law alumni secretary. If you would like to inquire about making a gift to the school, please contact Suzette Matthews, director of development.
Thank you for being a part of the Law School community.
