For example, if you are in need of a lawyer, financial adviser, or doctor, we have quite a few alumni working in those professions. There is no better place to start your search than among fellow Notre Dame family members.

However, it is important to note the club disclaims all responsibility for connections made through this listing of member profiles but rather provides it just as a simple way to help facilitate interaction among local alumni.
