How You Can Get Involved

As the only law school in the city, St. Mary’s Law takes seriously the obligation to serve the city, the bench and bar, and acts as a legal resource for the greater legal community. If you want to get involved with assisting St. Mary’s Law students or the community, read about more ways in which you can help down below, or fill out a volunteer form.

Get Involved with the Office of Career Strategy

In partnership with Alumni Relations, the Office of Career Strategy has rolled out a number of initiatives to ensure our students receive enriching experiences year-round. You can play a role in transforming our students into the strong leaders and professionals for which St. Mary’s Law is known.



Get Involved with the Pro Bono Program

St. Mary’s Law offers a number of volunteer opportunities for alumni who wish to help our students and the greater San Antonio community. Here are a few ways you can get involved.


Get Involved with the Advocacy Program

The St. Mary’s Law Advocacy Program hosts competitions throughout the academic year, the largest of which is the Lone Star Classic. Our students are always looking for volunteer judges to help make these competitions a success. Last year, St. Mary’s Law hosted guest schools such as Harvard Law, Loyola Law, Stetson Law and Emory Law.

Get Involved with Law Success

As part of the Law Success curriculum, all students are required to give a 15-minute presentation to a practicing attorney on a legal research topic. This project is meant to simulate the type of work a summer associate or new lawyer might do. Many of our students have never worked in a law office or had any experience communicating as a legal professional. You can help by volunteering your time for “supervisor meetings” to evaluate these student presentations.
