President's Message

A MESSAGE FROM Jake Reis, L'03

I’m truly honored to be your Marquette Law School Alumni Board President for the 2019-2020 academic year. As an active member of the Marquette Law School Alumni Board, I had the occasion to celebrate my fifteenth year in practice in 2018 and my fourteenth year of practice at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. It’s amazing that it has been that long since I walked the hallways of Sensenbrenner Hall and that some of the same great professors who taught me are still teaching the upcoming generation. Under the guidance of Dean Kearney, the Law School continues to expand its national reach and reputation. This expansion has been primarily in the legal academy and profession, but the Law School also has gained broader publicity and exposure across the country from its polling and public forum discussions on a wide variety of important social topics.

Serving on the Marquette Law School Alumni Board has given me the chance to meet many amazing alumni who have positively contributed to the meaning of what it means to be a “Marquette Lawyer”. I encourage you to take the opportunity to engage and participate in alumni events/programs. As Marquette lawyers, we have built an amazing school and reputation. On behalf of the Marquette Law Alumni Board, I invite to you to stay in touch with classmates and keep apprised of events and happenings at the Law School through publications, emails, Facebook, LinkedIn, and the Law School website. There are many opportunities to connect, learn, and serve with others who are positively redefining what it means to be a “Marquette Lawyer.”

If you have questions about opportunities to stay connected with Marquette Law School, please contact Christine Wilczynski-Vogel, Associate Dean for External Relations, Events, and Facilities, at
