The benchmark of a law school is its alumni, and there are over 10,000 Common Law alumni around the world.

Your community for life

Many of the best legal minds in the country and around the world have been educated at uOttawa’s Faculty of Law. Our alumni include Supreme Court judges, cabinet ministers, premiers, activists, senior public servants, entrepreneurs, business leaders, leaders of the bar, Stanley Cup champions, community leaders and Indigenous leaders. 

Many alumni work as lawyers in private and public practice, while some work in business, government, the tech sector, international organizations or the not-for-profit sector. They excel in their professions and contribute to improving their world.   

Whatever path you pursue after graduation, we wish to continue to engage with you and help you succeed with tools and opportunities for professional development and networking.  

Friendships that developed during law studies often form the basis of lifelong networks — both professional and personal.  You can stay connected to us in many ways:
