2019/2020 ND Mentorship Program: Mentors Still Available

Thank you to all of the 1Ls and 2L transfers who are participating in the 2019/2020 ND Alumni Mentorship Program. By now, 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. 

For 1Ls and transfer students who have not yet been 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 by number (i.e. Atlanta 1, small or mid-sized firm 15) and I will make pairings on a first come, first served basis. There are no additional mentors left in the program beyond what is listed below.

Please note that I have listed the mentors by both practice areas and cities below so you can search using either parameter. 

I will make pairings starting now on a first-come, first-served basis so the early bird definitely gets the worm.
