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. New students are matched with an upper-class mentor based on academic interests, shared experiences, hometowns, hobbies, and/or other common interests. 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.

As this year presents unanticipated challenges, we believe creating a strong MLM program will be more important than ever before. MLM’s mission this year is one of unity, coming together as one student body to support one another and to create a deeper sense of community, especially for the incoming class. The goal of MLM is to create a casual, natural relationship between mentors and mentees. The overall expectation is that a relationship develops genuinely between mentors and mentees and that positive outcomes will result for both parties.
