The Alumni Council of the Columbus School of Law is the governing body of the Law Alumni Association.  The Association was formed in the Fall of 2013 to promote the values, objectives and well-being of The Catholic University of America and Columbus School of Law, while building and fostering mutually beneficial relations between and among all stakeholders – students, faculty, administration, staff, alumni and friends worldwide. 

The founding members of the Alumni Council were appointed by the Dean and were selected for their strong involvement with the Law School and their connections within the Law School alumni community.  Future members will be appointed and elected by the Alumni Council to be representative of the Alumni Association as a whole.  

The Council convenes at least twice a year and members serve a three-year term.
