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.

In 2007, Pitre was elected a fellow of the prestigious International Academy of Trial Lawyers, and in 2006, he was recognized by the San Mateo County Trial Lawyers Association as Lawyer of the Year. He also was selected for inclusion in Best Lawyers in America (2006-2007) and ranked among the top 500 litigators in America by Lawdragon magazine. In addition, he has been named a Northern California Top 100 Super Lawyer for 2005–2007.
