Law Alumni Affinity Group Launch

Law Faculty launches Law Affinity Group

Prof Wesahl Domingo, Executive Dean of the University of Johannesburg’s (UJ) Faculty of Law, in collaboration with the UJ Alumni Office, launched the Law Alumni Affinity Group on Saturday, 7 May 2022.

The event served as a networking platform for alumni and the selected speakers, an opportunity to meet and liaise with the new Executive Dean, and to launch the law affinity group.

Through the alumni network affinity groups alumni can continue their association with UJ by engaging with each other around shared professional interests, personal interests, or university experiences. The groups comprise volunteers dedicated to celebrating connections, providing enrichment, and continuing UJ’s tradition of service with many offering networking, social gatherings, mentorship, seminars, and other means for alumni to stay connected to one another, including the university.

Prof Boitumelo Diale, Exco President of the Convocation, spoke on the importance of alumni, after which Prof Domingo delivered her address.

Prof Domingo explained to the alumni present that through the Law Alumni Affinity Group the Faculty of Law wants to create a touch point for alumni to connect with the faculty and each other.

She highlighted that the Law Faculty is the third best in SA and that it should come as no surprise that UJ’s law students are sought after in the legal and commercial world and public service.

She also informed them about the university’s law research centres that stimulate academic engagement, community engagements and that produce a pipeline of new generation of researchers and academics.

Prof Domingo called on UJ law alumni to appoint female law practitioners in what she said is still a male-dominated space.
