Providing Insights on Legal Careers
The Gonzaga Law School Alumni Mentoring program pairs 1L students with local alumnus of Gonzaga Law School. This experience is designed to provide students with insights about the legal profession, the realities of practicing law, and the difficulties and satisfaction of a legal career.
The mentor also will be able to offer 1L students time-tested advice and guidance regarding the Gonzaga Law School experience.
“Our alumni have a first-hand view of the state of the profession,” said John Sklut, Assistant Director of Students. “Their counsel is invaluable to students as they prepare for their own legal careers.”
Meeting Your Mentor
The official duration of the mentor/mentee relationship is one year, running from January of the student’s first year to January of the student’s second year. In October of each year, the Gonzaga Law School Alumni Association will host a reception where mentors and mentees will be introduced to one another. The Alumni office individually pairs 1L mentees with alumni mentors, ensuring that students are paired with alumni that best match their interests.
