Alumni Community Outreach Survey
With the goal of quantifying UNC School of Law's legacy of leadership
through our alumni’s stories of service, volunteerism, and leadership, the UNC
Law Alumni Association community outreach committee has developed a Carolina Lawyer Leader
Questionnaire to capture the many ways our alumni are the fabric of the communities where
they live and work.
As graduates of Carolina Law, our alumni are uniquely
qualified to serve as legislators, county commissioners, city council members,
school board members, non-profit board members, and in a variety of other
capacities. “As a result,” shared Jim Deal ’74, community outreach committee
chair “we are routinely asked to fill countless roles critical to the life of
our communities. We accept those responsibilities without hesitation. Now, we
need to ensure that there is an awareness of our commitment to enriching the
lives of the people of North Carolina and beyond.”
Please complete the survey at www.law.unc.edu/alumni/outreach/. Your responses will be
used to create electronic and hard copy communication pieces that illustrate
the impact of Carolina Law alumni in their communities. No contact information
will be shared.
