The Wisconsin Law Alumni Association (WLAA) was formed in 1934 by Dean Lloyd Garrison to promote closer contact between the Law School and its alumni. WLAA publishes our alumni magazine, The Gargoyle, conducts various alumni events including class reunions, and assists with fund-raising for the Law School.
WLAA also organized the Law School's Board of Visitors in 1957. Each year the Visitors arrive on campus to talk to students, faculty and staff about the Law School, review its programs, and advise the Dean on developments in the practice of law that will affect the School.
Under its current by-laws, everyone who has completed at least one academic semester at the Law School is eligible for membership in WLAA. There are currently over 14,000 members in all 50 states and about 40 other countries.
