TJSL Alumni

Bonnie Dumanis '76 and Renee Galente '08

Thomas Jefferson School of Law alumni have distinguished themselves in the legal, business, government and non-profit communities world-wide.


The first Filipina judge in the United States, Lillian Lim, is a graduate. The top criminal justice officials in San Diego County, District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis and Public Defender Henry Coker, are among our prominent graduates.


Our many distinguished alumni take time from their busy careers to serve as mentors and provide a network that opens doors for current students and other graduates. Alumni are a wonderful resource that reflects the diversity and complexity of our global society.
