Alumni Newsletter

The Law School has kept our graduates up to date for decades on current happenings by publishing an alumni newsletter – both in hard copy and digital formats. Lately, we’ve undertaken a project to make historical publications available online, so you can catch up on news you missed or read the stories that contributed to our rich history. Be on the lookout for expanded archives in the months to come, and if you have information or issues yet to appear, let us know!

As best we can tell, the first newsletters ran in the years before (and continued publication through) World War II as the Alumni Docket. Unfortunately records are minimal until 1953 when alumni news was published under the BriefCase masthead (which should sound familiar to graduates of the 90s and early 21st Century). In the mid-1970s, the newsletter was published under the title of The John Marshall Law School Alumni News—a name that remained in use, throughout various design changes, until the 1990s. After a few other short-lived titles, the newsletter returned to its roots as BriefCase before ceasing publication in hard copy. Today, our alumni newsletter arrives conveniently by email, so you can stay on top of the news, events and opportunities to grow and expand your professional skills and network.

Law School Alumni Newsletter Archives

In our effort to preserve and promote the Law School’s long history of alumni success and impact, we’ve combed through the Law School’s archives and unearthed treasures unseen for decades! Each issue in this collection presents not only its own valuable history but also a snapshot of the past. Enjoy!
