“Having these talented volunteers join at a critical time in legal education because they want to give back to Wake Forest Law speaks volumes about their character and drive,” said Logan Roach (‘07), Assistant Dean of Development and staff liaison to the LBOV. “We are thrilled to welcome each new member as the Law School starts another year under the leadership of new dean, Andy Klein, welcomes a new 1L class in the fall, and engages in the Strategic Framework process under the leadership of President Wente.”

These three boards meet regularly throughout the year to hear updates from Wake Forest Law leadership and use their legal, business, nonprofit, and community expertise to help the School of Law develop and implement its mission and goals. Members support opportunities specifically with the Office of Career and Professional Development, Office of Admissions, and Office of Development and Alumni Engagement with the ultimate goal of helping our students succeed and encouraging fellow alumni to stay engaged.
