There are three categories of Law Board membership: Active, Life, and Honorary.

Active members serve renewable three-year terms and participate at a consistent, high level in the life of the Law School and the Board activities. Life members are former Active members who maintain involvement on the Board under a relaxed set of participation expectations. Honorary members have courtesy appointments to the Law Board.
