Leadership & Advisory Boards

Stanford Law School has four Leadership and Advisory Boards that serve specific functions. Members of the Board of Visitors are selected by the dean for their distinction as leaders in law, business, and service to the public, and demonstrated commitment to the school. Regional Law Community Leadership board members represent and maintain ties with 18 national and international groups of alumni. Reunion Leadership alumni volunteer for their class reunions on Fundraising Committees and Outreach & Planning Committees.

About Board of Visitors

Since 1958, the Board of Visitors has played an important role in helping the dean of the law school respond to particular challenges facing legal education. Members of the Board are appointed by the dean and are selected for their distinction as leaders in law, business, and service to the public, and demonstrated commitment to the school. They meet as a group once each year to discuss a wide range of issues including the legal profession, legal education, short-term and long-term plans for Stanford Law School, and ongoing concerns in areas related to student admissions and careers, curricular initiatives, faculty research, alumni and constituent involvement, and resource needs. The Board’s input is critical to maintaining the school’s strong tradition of academic excellence.
