The Law Society, with the help of the Career Center and Alumni Relations, has organized a Mentorship Program that matches active Law Society members to alums in the field of law. This program is organized and maintained by the Law Society’s Professional Development committee.
The purpose of this program is to
- Help students through the law school preparation process
- Forge and maintain connections between students and alumni
- Help provide students with additional resources and networks
The Mentorship Program consists of two key parts
- Individual Mentorship
- Consists of one-on-one traditional mentorship between a mentee and a mentor that have been matched up together by the Program according to interest, location, law school preference, etc.
- On-Campus Mentorship Sessions
- Consists of appointments where an alum in a particular field/area of law who is visiting campus, will conduct in-depth individual sessions with students interested in that particular career path.
The Mentorship Program is open to members regardless of class year, however preference is given to seniors and juniors. Students are matched with alumni based on several factors including interests, law school preference, geographic location, and other considerations.
The goal of this program is to encourage students to develop a positive relationship with a Williams alum in the legal field who can help guide them through the law school process, provide advice and suggestions, and answer questions they may have about law schools, legal careers, or anything else that might better prepare the student for a future in law. We also hope that this program encourages students to maintain connections with alumni, and allows them to further their networking abilities, and become successful members of the Williams community.
