Attorney Andrea M. Wells was recently appointed as a member of the Board of Directors of the Western New England University School of Law Alumni Association.
Her three year tenure will officially commence in October 2019 during the University’s Homecoming Weekend. Service on the Board of Directors is a volunteer opportunity for Andrea to connect the University and its Law Alumni and to help establish and maintain that important relationship.
Western New England University Law School is currently celebrating its 100th year, and has maintained an important connection between the school, its graduates and the community for the past century. Law Alumni Association members serve as mentors for current students, panelists for career services events, and guest judges for moot court competitions. The Law School recently partnered with the Children and Family Law Division of the Committee for Public Counsel Services to address what Supreme Judicial Court Chief Justice Ralph Gants has described as a “constitutional emergency” due to the lack of attorneys available to represent children and parents in child welfare cases. It is initiatives like these that drew Andrea to Board Membership.
The Law Alumni Association governs all alumni activity including scholarship, fundraising, career development, and recognizing and awarding deserving alumni. Regional chapters host and coordinate many events and volunteer opportunities all over the country. Andrea looks forward to serving on the Board and thanks those who nominated and approved her appointment!
