A major pillar of the Communication Law and Policy Society is fostering dialogues and collaborations between students and professionals. The high caliber of group membership and work product has led to a strong reputation in the fields of technology and communication law which has, in turn, facilitated the placing of many Alumni into this fast past and growing field.

These relationships, old and new, are maintained and encouraged through mentorship and networking opportunities cultivated during our Symposium, Moot Court competitions, Brown-Bag Lunch Lecture Series and a number of other events designed to connect our members and the law school community to communication law as it is practiced today.
