Law College Association
The Law College Association (LCA) promotes the advancement of the James E. Rogers College of Law, by raising and managing donations to benefit our students and programs. Every Arizona Law alumni, no matter your degree program or graduation year, are members of the LCA.
The 501(c)3 organization is governed by a board of alumni and friends of the college, who manage an investment portfolio directed under the LCA’s Investment Policy Statement, and administer endowment funds governed by the LCA’s Endowment and Endowment Spending Policies.
The LCA also sponsors popular events throughout the year for alumni: The Red & Blue BBQ and Homecoming Weekend activities, the LCA Awards (nominate someone now), an annual Donor & Scholarship Celebration, and receptions in various cities for alumni and students.
The LCA annually elects officers and directors. If you’re interested in becoming a member of the board contact Senior Director of Development Megan O’Leary.
