UNH Law Alumni Class Agent Program

Class Agents for UNH Law/FPLC help build our alumni community by serving as ambassadors between the school and your fellow classmates. The time commitment is small – agents volunteer approximately 10-20 hours per year towards this effort. Our goal is to maintain 2-4 agents per class so that the responsibilities are shared. Visit the Current Class Agent List to see who are the current agents for your class.

UNH Law's network of successful alumni is one of our greatest assets, and we ask your help to engage the other members of your class. We are committed to providing a meaningful, career-focused education for our current and future students so that they may become proud alumni of UNH Law. You can help this happen.

Your Role as a Class Agent:

  1. Class agents share information about UNH Law events. - Agents help us connect with alumni by sharing information about events and programs including reunions, receptions, conferences, lectures, and celebrations. We ask that you share event information sent to you by the Institutional Advancement (IA) Office on social networking sites and whenever you encounter fellow alumni of your class year or another.
  2. Class agents provide updates about fellow alumni to the IA Office. - Using your online and in person network, agents forward updates about classmates to the IA Office. Updates include promotions, new jobs, awards, publications, speaking engagements, marriages, births, deaths, and more.
  3. Class agents facilitate the annual class gift campaign. - Agents encourage participation from their classmates to help shape the future of UNH Law. The IA office will work with you to communicate with your classmates and ask for their support. We also expect that you will set the example and make a gift to the Annual Fund each year. No gift is too small, and your support shows a commitment to the school that will lead the way for the rest of your class.
  4. Class agents help plan reunion events and receptions. - Agents are the IA Office's first point of contact with a class when the time comes for reunions and/or receptions. Agents are invited but not required to participate in planning such events. If you choose not to join the planning committee, we expect that you will still share the event details with your classmates and show support for the event.
