Alan Page (NFL Hall of Famer) - Minnesota
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Page

Long before Page’s football career came to a close, he was laying the groundwork for his future role as a justice with the Minnesota Supreme Court. While playing professional football full-time, Page attended the University of Minnesota Law School, from which he received his Juris Doctor in 1978. Following graduation, he worked with the law firm of Lindquist and Vennum in Minneapolis from 1979 to 1984. In 1985, Page was appointed Special Assistant Attorney General, and was soon thereafter promoted to Assistant Attorney General.

In 1992, Page was elected to an open seat as an Associate Justice of the Minnesota Supreme Court, becoming the first African-American to ever serve on that court. He was re-elected in 1998, becoming the biggest vote-getter in Minnesota history, and was again re-elected in 2004.

Since my school's two most infamous alumni (John Edwards and Mike Nifong) have been mentioned, I thought I'd point out two whose jobs I think are pretty damn cool:

Donnie Walsh -- UNC
Jim Delany -- UNC

Ralph Nader - Harvard Law
