Director of Alumni Relations Harvard Law School, Cambridge, MA

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail Founded in 1817, Harvard Law School (HLS) is the oldest continuously operating law school in the United States and is consistently ranked as one of the best in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. It is a place for people who value ideas because ideas make a difference in the world; who want to think about the law’s interaction with public policy, business, information and biomedical technologies, and human needs and perceptions; who are fascinated by the power of institutions and rules while mindful of the unintended consequences of policy reforms; and who pursue the legal profession’s service to society. Under the previous management structure where both the HLS Annual Fund and Alumni Relations had a single director, a strong and robust Class Reunion program was established.  Restructuring to bring Alumni Relations under the expertise of a dedicated alumni relations manager, Harvard Law School now seeks an enthusiastic and strategic professional for the position of Director of Alumni Relations. The position is responsible for the planning and implementation of programs and projects that engage alumni in strengthening a connection to HLS that extends beyond traditional reunion programs. The Director provides leadership for alumni programs, volunteers and clubs that complements and supports the mission of Harvard Law School. The ideal candidate for this position will have a demonstrated track record as an alumni relations professional. In addition to maintaining a highly successful reunion program, the incoming Director of Alumni Relations will have tremendous opportunity to build bridges with a global network of Harvard Law School alumni through oversight of the Harvard Law School Association (HLSA).  Celebrating its 125th anniversary this year, HLSA is the oldest association of its kind, and serves some 37,000 members through a worldwide network of clubs by supporting and sponsoring programming and events and providing a vital link between Harvard Law School and its increasingly diverse and impressive alumni body that includes six current U.S. Supreme Court Justices.
