Mentoring Programs for Students

The Peer Mentor Program

Southwestern's Peer Mentor Program, housed under the Student Affairs Office, serves as a resource to support the professional and personal development of incoming first-year students. Peer Mentors assist in building community on campus and foster student development through mentorship and guidance to campus resources. First-year students are matched with their upper-division Peer Mentors during Orientation. Questions about the program may be directed to the Student Affairs Office.

The Alumni Resource Network

The Alumni Resource Network assists continuing students with the transition from student to lawyer. Over 450 alumni participate in the program, which provides students with an opportunity to contact and network with alumni in specific practice and/or geographic areas. Alumni offer advice on networking opportunities, career matters, and expertise in particular areas of practice.

This program also allows students to become acquainted with some of the finer aspects of lawyering by developing relationships with alumni already involved in the legal arena. These alumni are willing to share both their educational and professional experiences with students and can be a valuable source of information and guidance.
