Liz Hartwell Elected President of University of St. Thomas School of Law Alumni Board
Commencing July 1, Elizabeth Drotning Hartwell is President of the University of St. Thomas School of Law Alumni Board. The Law Alumni Advisory Board directs and conducts the business and affairs of the Alumni Association, advances the St. Thomas Law mission, and furthers the goals and objectives of the Alumni Association.
“Our alumni board is the link between the School of Law and the wider world,” said Liz. “We play a vital role in advising the school what it’s like out here - what’s going on in the legal community, what it needs, and how the School of Law can fill that need. As our alumni live out the school’s mission in their vocations and communities, we in turn are helping the School of Law shape future generations of thoughtful, compassionate servant leaders.”
The goals and objectives of the Alumni Board include advising and informing the administration in matters important to the St. Thomas law community; fostering a spirit of public service; recognizing personal and professional accomplishments of the law alumni community; assisting law alumni and students with career opportunities and development; and promoting the highest aspirations for the profession and practice of law.
As President of the Law Alumni Board, Liz will also serve a two-year term on the University of St. Thomas School of Law Board of Governors.
