Mentoring and More @ Moritz

Application for New Mentoring Students

The Mentoring and More @ Moritz program sponsorship is thanks to the generosity of Baker & Hostetler in memory of John D. Drinko '44.

Mentoring and More @ Moritz serves as a bridge between the theory and the practice of law. Program participants are placed in mentoring groups comprised of four to six students with at least two mentors.

Mentoring assignments are generally based on student interest and mentor background/practice area. Throughout the academic year, mentoring groups are invited to complementary luncheons held at the Moritz Barrister Club. During these luncheons, prominent speakers address pressing issues and current trends in the law. The speaker's presentation is followed by discussions between mentors, students, faculty and guest.

Applicants to the mentoring program are asked to indicate their general areas of legal interest on the mentoring application to assist with assigning students to appropriate mentoring groups. While your legal interests are helpful in the matching process there is no guarantee that there will be mentors available to match specific request.

Mentoring 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 deepen the mentoring relationship beyond the luncheons.

The mentoring program is neither designed nor intended to facilitate job placement opportunities for students. Mentor matches will be made over the summer and your mentoring group assignment will be sent to you at the email address you provide on this form. Participating students will be required to attend a short orientation that will be scheduled in late August or early September.

If you have any questions, please contact Angela Henderson, Program Coordinator for the Mentoring and More @ Moritz program at (614) 688-4359 or MoritzMentoring@osu.edu.

Applications must be completed by August 1, 2014.
