The San Diego-based law firm Seltzer Caplan McMahon Vitek announces that shareholder Dan Eaton has assumed the presidency of the Harvard Law School Association (HLSA), an organization serving some 38,000 Harvard Law School alumni across the globe. After serving one year as president-elect, Eaton began his two-year term as president on July 1, 2018.

Eaton received his law degree, cum laude, from Harvard Law School in 1989. He has served on the HLSA Executive Committee and as president of the association’s San Diego chapter.

“The Harvard Law School Association enables alumni around the world to remain connected to each other and the school long after they have completed their time in Cambridge,” Eaton said. “I am excited to build on the work of my predecessors in creating an ever more engaged community of nearly 40,000 HLS alumni and help our alums draw on the resources of the alumni network to become leaders in the law and other fields.”

Eaton, a partner in the firm’s Litigation Department, concentrates his practice on defending and advising clients on a broad range of employment issues. He has written and spoken extensively on employment law, business and legal ethics, and other legal topics throughout much of his career, often appearing in local print and broadcast media as a legal analyst. Since 2007, he has taught classes in ethical decision-making and, since 2009, employment law at San Diego State University’s Fowler College of Business.

Started in 1886 by nearly 400 alumni, HLSA today connects more than 38,000 graduates in nearly 150 countries. These alumni often continue to serve Harvard Law School, its graduates and students for decades thereafter. Through local associations and many shared interest groups, HLSA fulfills its mission to advance legal education, increase Harvard Law School’s usefulness worldwide and promote good fellowship among its members.
