Alumni & Student Speed Mentoring
Aikens Commons, Lower Level
Have you heard of speed networking? Well, this is speed mentoring! Alumni will “mentor” law students in six-minute blocks. Over the course of an hour, students will change seats and mentors every six minutes, gathering information and advice from those in practice. Casual networking will follow.
Interested alumni and students are asked to complete a short questionnaire about their background, career experiences, interests, and aspirations. The answers gathered from the survey will be compiled into information sheets that the alumni and students can exchange with one another. More than a business card, but shorter than a resume, these information sheets will allow you to stay connected to those you have met.
Want to participate? Please complete the survey at www.law.umich.edu/mentor by
Friday, September 12. Questions? Please email email@example.com.

technology, accessibility, and safety features.
