The Northwestern Pritzker School of Law Mentorship Program matches alumni (mentors) with current students (mentees) to ensure that students receive the mentoring they need to maximize their potential, both during law school and afterward. Matches are determined based on students’ needs and the areas of law they are interested in. The program supports students from their acceptance to Northwestern Law through their first year post graduation. Alumni mentors and student mentees are invited to participate in orientations, socials and panel discussions.
How It Works
- Participants register and complete a profile, which should take 15 minutes.
- Alumni may participate as mentors. Students may participate as mentees.
- Mentorship matches are then determined based on students’ needs and areas of law they are interested in and subsequently announced to the match.
- Once mutually established, the mentor-mentee pair then agrees on goals and communication preferences, and continues to connect through individual meetings and program socials and panel discussions.
