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.

Alumni Association Gala 2022

The Association has held the annual Alumni Recognition dinner since 1968, awarding the coveted Distinguished Alumni Award and the Fannie Bear Besser Award for Public Service to exceptional alumni of whom we are proud. This year's Alumni Recognition gala will take place on Tuesday, November 1, 2022, at the Maplewood Country Club. Our esteemed honorees are Hon. Zahid N. Quraishi '00, George E. McPhee '92, and Jeanne LoCicero '00.

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.

The Association will host it's Annual Golf Outing on June 8, 2022 at the Maplewood Country Club. You can register for the event here.
