The law school's relationship with its students continues long after graduation. Our alumni tell us that their USF education provided them with the skills and perspective that launched successful careers as legal professionals.

The friendships formed during law school last a lifetime. We want all of our alumni to also have a life-long relationship with the law school.

At USF, we have a continuing commitment to our alumni and greatly value their involvement in the life of the law school. We are proud of the active participation of so many alumni as financial contributors, advisors to the dean and faculty, and as mentors to current students. In addition, we are privileged to have the support of philanthropists and many prominent members of the legal community who, although they did not attend the law school, embrace our mission and value our local and global initiatives.

The USF School of Law Office of Development and Alumni Relations is led by Director of Development and Alumni Relations Robin Keating; Associate Director Erica Levison; Associate Director Caroline Knowles; and Program Assistant Erin Flannery.

Maria Rivera '74, Associate Justice, First District Court of Appeal

Maria Rivera

Prior to joining the bench, Justice Rivera was a partner with McCutchen, Doyle, Brown & Enerson and served as assistant U.S. attorney and deputy district attorney in San Francisco. She has been named Pro Bono Judge of the Year and serves on the Legal Services Trust Fund Commission, the ABA Commission on Racial and Ethnic Diversity in the Profession, and the Commission on Impartial Courts. "In the past two decades, USF has become more and more focused on its mission to educate students to be effective lawyers with a social conscience, high ethical standards, and a global perspective," she says. "Unquestionably, a part of my path to the bench was rooted in the notion inculcated in me at USF that a law degree is a privilege and must be used not just to make a living but also in service to the community."
