Career Development Office is pleased to invite you to join the Widener
Law Alumni Network Mentoring Program. (Sign up using our Mentor Program Online Registration Form
The Program pairs first-year students with qualified, experienced
alumni like you for a short, informal mentorship to introduce new law
students to the legal profession. The Program's primary goal is to
initiate mentoring relationships between Widener alumni and first year
law students. During its life, the Program has helped to instill
professionalism, expose students to law practice, and allow students to
begin to develop a professional network early in their legal careers.
guidelines are simple and requirements minimal. Mentors and proteges
are matched based on common professional interests and other factors,
such as practice preference and geographic region. Pairs should have at
least three contacts during the academic year. Mentors and proteges may
agree to have more contacts. The first contact may be our exciting
October "Kick-Off" event. We hope that mentoring relationships will
continue beyond the student's first year.
As a mentor, you can
share informal advice on a wide range of topics including law school,
legal practice areas, ethical issues, and the role of lawyers and judges
in the profession. The Program provides you with an excellent
opportunity to help shape the future of the profession, strengthen the
"Widener Network," and make a positive difference in the development of a
future colleague. Many mentors report benefits to themselves as well.
Mentors may find their own appreciation for the legal profession renewed
through exposure to the excitement and idealism of a first-year law
The only requirements for a mentor are membership in any state's bar and two years of experience. Participation is voluntary.
Thank you for considering membership in the Widener Alumni Network Mentoring Program.
