FELLOWS ALUMNI: ARE YOU ALL IN?
With more than 1,000 members, the Fellows Alumni community is poised to have a big impact on the legal profession. But in order to make that change happen, Fellows need to share ideas, open networks, learn from other organizations, and much more. The "All In!" campaign helps make that possible.

- There is a $4.04 convenience fee associated with using PayPal. If you prefer not to pay a convenience fee and pay by check, please email Courtney Nolde, Fellows Alumni Program Manager at LCLD.
- You don't need a PayPal account to use PayPal to make your contribution. Look for the “Don’t have a PayPal Account?” message and follow the simple instructions.
If you would like to host an event in your area, the Fellows Alumni Association has set aside funds from last year's campaign to support you.
