Lawyers Collaborative for Diversity, Inc. Mentor Program
The Lawyers Collaborative for Diversity, Inc. (LCD) Mentor Program is designed to provide law students of color an opportunity to develop a one-on-one relationship with a lawyer from one of LCD’s participating organizations. The practicing lawyer provides information on various issues, including, but not limited to, the day-to-day practice of law, large law firm/government agency/corporate culture and assimilation, job research strategies and skills, law school courses, and related academic issues. Anyone interested should contact Kai Davis at either (860) 524-5386 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Women Law Students’ Association Mentor/Mentee Program
The Women Law Students’ Association (WLSA) provides the opportunity for first year law school students to be paired with an upperclass student who has had similar first year professors or who has a similar interest in law. The upperclass student mentor answers questions, gives advice and aids his or her student mentee throughout their first year in law school.
The WLSA mentor/mentee program is open to all students regardless of gender and mentors/mentees need not be members of WLSA in order to participate.
Upperclassman interested in volunteering to be a WSLA mentor to a first year student should contact the Women Law Students’ Association at WLSA@students.law.uconn.edu.
