Mentoring and More at Moritz
Mentoring and More @ Moritz, supported by the Baker Hostetler Endowment for Professional Development, 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.
Mentoring groups are comprised of two mentors and up to six students. Throughout the academic year, mentoring groups are invited to luncheons held at the Moritz Barrister Club*. 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 programmed events to build upon and deepen the mentoring relationship. *Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020-2021 mentoring program will be virtual.
Mentoring and More @ Moritz is open to all students. Incoming and current students interested in participating in the program must complete the Mentoring and More @ Moritz interest application (the application will open late spring).
To become a mentor or for additional information about the program, contact Angela Henderson, mentoring coordinator, at MoritzMentoring@osu.edu.
The Application Process
Mentoring assignments generally are based on student interest and mentor background/practice area. Applicants are asked to indicate their general areas of legal interest on their applications because it is helpful in the matching process.
The mentoring program is neither designed nor intended to facilitate job placement opportunities for students. Mentor matches will be made over the summer, and students’ mentoring group assignments will be sent to the email address provided on their application.
Application Deadline: August 3, 2020
