Young Alumni Board

The Faculty of Law's Young Alumni Board (YAB) is comprised of successful alumni who have graduated in the last 10 years. They work to increase fraternity, engagement, and philanthropy amongst their fellow alumni. The YAB meets once every fall and spring semester for a two-hour meeting, with committee work occurring between meetings. Members are expected to attend meetings, actively serve on committees and provide financial support to the University.

Members serve a two-year term and are selected based on their affinity and support of the school, engagement with McGill Law since graduation, leadership in the community or their field, and other factors. We are strongly committed to fostering a diverse and representative Board within our community.

If you are interested in being considered for nomination to this board of young alumni and helping direct the future of McGill’s Faculty of Law, please send your resume and a 500-word statement of qualifications to Julie Brown (julie.brown2 [at]
