Alumni


 

Our alumni are a tremendous source of strength for the firm and are our best brand ambassadors.

We have a dynamic alumni network of over 3,000 lawyers who live and work in over 51 countries worldwide across all sectors of business, government, law and academia.

At Davis Polk, we support the personal and professional development of our lawyers and strive to maintain that support and connection as our lawyers transition to new ventures.

Through the Alumni Network, members are able to search for and reconnect with former colleagues, check the calendar for upcoming alumni events, browse and post job opportunities, access the CLE library and peruse alumni news and spotlights.

Interview

Andrew Yang (New York, '99)

We recently caught up with our alum Andrew Yang, the founder and former CEO of Venture for America (VFA). VFA is a fellowship program that places top college graduates in start-ups for two years in emerging U.S. cities to generate job growth and train the next generation of entrepreneurs.

Named a "Champion of Change" by the White House for his VFA work, Andrew shares what inspired him to take on regional inequality.

Davis Polk Revisited

At Davis Polk, we understand that a lawyer’s career path may include taking a break from the legal profession for a number of reasons, including to pursue careers outside the law or due to child care or other personal priorities.

We are committed to helping alumni transition back to the legal profession.

Davis Polk Revisited is a reentry program designed to support former Davis Polk lawyers who have taken an extended break from the legal profession and wish to return to full-time legal careers.

It is a year-long program that is open to alumni who have three or more years of Davis Polk experience and who have been away from the legal profession for at least two years.

Participants will receive the training, CLE and reintegration support they need to resume their careers.

Interested alumni can apply directly on the Davis Polk Alumni Network.
