Join the Marquette Law Mentorship Program

The Marquette Law Mentorship Program pairs first-year law students with upper-class mentors to help ease the transition into law school. Mentors and mentees are paired based on academic interests, hometowns, hobbies or other common interests. A couple of formal events will be planned over the semester, but events mainly serve as a gateway to encourage further and more frequent contact between mentors and mentees. The program is designed to create genuine friendships that benefit both mentor and mentee.

If you would like to participate, fill out this short form and await your pairing!

If you have any questions please contact MLM Co-Chairs Wynetta McIntosh or Ashley Rossman.
