The Villanova Law Alumni Association has regional chapters where large concentrations of alumni are living. The chapters help to keep alumni connected to the Law School and to one another in these regions. 

For more information on chapter activities or to volunteer to serve on your chapter's leadership board, please contact one of the regional officers or the Office of Alumni Relations.
