Student Bar Association
At New England Law, we understand the challenges students face as they transition into law school. To help ease this adjustment, first-year students may enroll in the mentor program.
Each year, current students at New England Law volunteer their time and experience to assist and mentor incoming first year students with their transition to law school. The purpose of the Mentor Program is to provide new first year students with not only a resource, but a support network here at New England Law. Current students can be invaluable by offering advice and guidance regarding managing the rigors of the first year. To ensure a smooth transition for incoming students, mentors contact their mentees prior to the first day of orientation.
Mentors and mentees are matched through a detailed process where the students' home state, undergraduate university, areas of legal interest, hobbies, and general interests are considered. We hope that the relationships that are formed through the Mentor Program will not only benefit students through their first year, but through law school and beyond in their legal careers.
Beginning in early June, incoming students are mailed a Mentor Program welcome letter from the Student Bar Association president.
Students interested in mentoring can sign up online. Please note that the information provided on the form is used solely to best match mentor and mentee.
