Mentoring and More @ Moritz serves as a bridge between the theory and the practice of law. Students learn by example from mentors who care deeply about improving law and its administration, have high expectations for themselves and their colleagues in the profession and are willing to help guide those who follow them into the profession.
Students participating in the mentoring program are placed in mentoring groups comprised of 3 to 5 students with at least 2 mentors. Mentoring assignments are made over the summer and each mentoring group is based on student interest and mentor background/practice area.
Throughout the academic year, mentoring groups are invited to luncheons held at the Moritz Barrister club featuring a prominent speaker addressing pressing issues and current trends in the law, followed by discussion between mentors, students, faculty and guests. Attending at least three of these lunches is a minimum requirement to participate in the program.
Mentoring and More @ Moritz luncheons serve as a springboard for encouraging continued, informal contact between students and mentors. Mentors and students are encouraged to meet more frequently outside of Moritz mentoring events to build upon and deepen the mentoring relationship.
