Track Alumni and Increase Engagement
Law School Alumni Career Survey
Hanover will design, administer and analyze the results of a Law School Alumni Career Survey. Based on the After the J.D. project, this survey will help your institution’s administrators learn more about the paths alumni have taken since graduation. To see whether real change has occurred over time, we could compare the results of several different generations of students. The survey could also touch on a variety of subjects including externships and related experiences, job search techniques, practice settings and terms of post-graduation positions, compensation, and changes in jobs. A final set of questions could ask respondents about their use of the School’s resources such as job postings and the alumni website, as well as whether they would be willing to participate in focus groups, act as alumni mentors, or share their experiences with current students on a career panel.
Personal Inventory of Legal Accomplishment Survey Analysis
Hanover will provide descriptive statistics and analyses of questions posed to your institution School of Law 2012 graduates on their personal inventories of legal accomplishments. Questions explore respondents’ work experience, practice/general career interests, accomplishments, advisory networks, and sense of practice readiness.
Alumni Engagement Survey and Law School Alumni Engagement Best Practices
Hanover will collect alumni responses to an Alumni Engagement Survey focused on alumni opinions of the Alumni Relations Office at your institution. Another substantial theme of the survey will be the alumni attitude towards giving to your institution fundraising efforts. The results are presented by theme in the following six sections:
- Demographics – We will report on overall demographics of respondents, including highest degree obtained, year of graduation, geographic region, and donor status.
- Opinion of your institution Education – We will present alumni opinions of their your institution degree and the likelihood that they would recommend the program to others.
- Alumni Office –We will analyze alumni responses to questions regarding the activities of the Alumni Relations Office.
- Alumni Events – We will report on alumni responses regarding their attendance at alumni events and the importance of various factors in deciding whether to attend.
- Alumni Donations – We will present alumni responses to questions related to alumni giving and your institution fundraising. We will include both fixed responses and open-ended responses.
- Alumni Network –We will present open-ended responses to four questions about the alumni network. We include the most frequently mentioned contacts in the your institution network and the corporate boards and non-profit boards on which alumni serve.
Finally, we will explore steps law schools take to increase alumni participation and profile alumni engagement efforts at peer institutions. Common motives for implementing a deadline admissions process over a rolling admissions process are the accommodation of larger application volumes and the improved ability to shape and manage the incoming freshman class.
