Mentoring Program Launch
9:30 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.
South Hall, Jeffries Lounge

Michigan Law is pleased to feature a new one-on-one mentoring program for alumni
and students. Interested alumni are asked to complete a short questionnaire about
their background, career experiences, and interests. Alumni and their matched
students will meet in person at this breakfast reception. It’s up to you as to how much time (beyond the reception) you’d like to commit to communicating with your
new mentee. Typically this might involve an email or phone call once per month (for
a minimum of six months) to check in with the student. And, as this program is part
of a larger pilot project, please anticipate that Law School staff will seek your
feedback at various points in the process.

If you are interested and able to attend this breakfast reception, please complete
the survey. DEADLINE OCTOBER 4.
