Last call for the 2018/2019 ND Mentorship Program for all classes

Thank you to all of the students who are participating in the 2018/2019 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. 

The mentorship program is now open to all classes and to students who have already been paired with a mentor. If you are planning to schedule alumni meetings while you are in town for GALILEE, looking to start building contacts in a new market, or hoping to get a jump on your networking efforts in the new year, this is a really easy opportunity to make an alumni contact with little effort on your part. 

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 send me a separate email rather than responding to my email. 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 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.

I will make pairings starting now on a first-come, first-served basis until I go on maternity leave in late December/early January so the early bird definitely gets the worm.
