2017/2018 Mentorship Program: Mentors still available!

Thank you to all of the 1Ls who are participating in the 2017/2018 mentorship program. By now, just about everyone who filled out the survey has been paired with a mentor. I am excited to hear about your meetings and conversations with your mentors, especially as I know that many of those meetings are taking place next week while many of you are participating in GALILEE.

For 1Ls that did not fill out the survey in 2017 and for 2Ls and 3Ls interested in being paired with a mentor, I have good news for you.

I have several mentors left in the program in multiple practice areas and cities.

I have listed the available mentors below. If you want to be paired with one of them, email me your top two choices and I will make pairings on a first come, first served basis. 

Please note that I have listed the mentors by both practice areas and cities below so you can feel free to request a mentor based on their practice area, background, or the city they practice in. Additionally, if you want to be paired with a female mentor or mentor from another specific background, I can likely accommodate that request as long as you are open to any city.
