The Young Alumni/Alumnae Council of the School of Law of the University of Georgia was formed in 2015 to communicate the interests of younger alumni/alumnae of the law school to the Dean and administrative staff.

Representing the law school within the greater community and building support for the institution, members interact with the various offices at the school including admissions, student affairs and career development and host events for the younger alumni/alumnae community and current law students.
