Learn about the NYC chapter of the Alumni Association.

The Rutgers School of Law–Newark Alumni Association is a separate 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization and a major resource for the law school. The mission of the association is to strengthen relationships among alumni and between alumni and the Law School community, and to advance the ideals, reputation, and educational goals of Rutgers Law School.

This year's Alumni Recognition gala was held on Oct. 30 at Maplewood Country Club. Shepard Goldfein '75 and Maureen Ruane '93 each received distinguished alumni awards, while Hon. Camelia M. Valdes '96, was honored with The Fannie Bear Besser Award for Public Service. 

Proceeds from the annual Alumni Recognition Dinner and your direct donations enable us to sponsor the annual Weintraub Lecture, the law school reception at the New Jersey State Bar Association annual meeting, and other alumni networking events in New York and New Jersey. The Alumni Association also runs a Mentoring Program, and recognizes student achievement at graduation with the Justice Henry E. Ackerson, Jr. Prize, the Alumni Senior Prize, and the Eli Jarmel Memorial Prize.

Volunteers are the key to success of the Alumni Association. If you would like to get involved, please contact the president. 

For students seeking funding from the Alumni Association, please fill out the funding request form.

The policies and procedures of the Rutgers School of Law–Newark Alumni Association can be found in the bylaws. A separate protocol for establishing regional chapters, pursuant to the bylaws, can be found here. All Rutgers Law School graduates from Newark are automatically members of the Alumni Association. There are no membership dues, although contributions are vital to support programs and events sponsored by the Alumni Association.
