Cardiff Law Alumni Network
Welcome back to the CLAN!
Students at the Law School

Dear Law alumni,

My name is Alison Tobin and I'll be taking over the newsletter which my former colleague Georgina Thomson used to send to graduates from the Cardiff Law School. I hope to bring you all the latest news and success stories from the School, and to hear back from you to learn more about how your career has progressed since leaving Cardiff.

We are planning to send this newsletter about three times a year and we hope you enjoy hearing about the exciting developments at the School. We welcome any suggestions or contributions you might have to make this a positive tool for you and your fellow alumni.

Best wishes

Alison Tobin MA, MCIPR, Publicity and Marketing Officer
