Marquette Law Mentorship Program

All first-year law students and transfer students are invited to participate in the Marquette Law Mentorship (MLM) program, a peer-mentoring program hosted by the Office of Student Affairs. Participating students gain an immediate connection to a second- or third-year law student who assists them in making a successful transition to Marquette University Law School. Mentors help welcome their mentees and guide them to the academic, social, and professional resources available to them, helping them quickly integrate into the Law School community.

New students are matched with an upper-class mentor based on areas of study, hometowns, hobbies, and other common interests. The goal of MLM is to create a casual, natural relationship between mentors and mentees. MLM events also will make it easy for mentors and mentees to check-in regularly throughout the mentees' first year of law school. The expectation is that the relationship develops into a true friendship and that positive outcomes will result for both parties.
