The law school's first graduate was Betty Trier Berry, who became the first woman lawyer to work for a public defender's office in the United States. The next year, among Southwestern graduates was B. Rey Schauer who went on to serve as a distinguished member of the California Supreme Court, setting the path to be followed by other Southwestern alumni such as Justice Stanley Mosk, the longest serving justice in the Court's history, and Justice Paul Peek who also served as California Secretary of State and Speaker of the Assembly. In the many decades since, Southwestern alumni have continued that tradition of leadership, distinguishing themselves as independent thinkers and legal pioneers.

But Southwestern alumni are much more than an historical footnote. They are an integral part of the ongoing success of the school. They serve as mentors, sponsors, advisors, and the source of a far-reaching network opening doors for current students and graduates. They pave the way in a wide range of law and law-related professions, and they demonstrate - in board rooms and court rooms, in front of television cameras and behind the scenes - the real strength of a Southwestern education.
