One-on-one Mentoring

For those unable to attend our speed mentoring events or looking for on-going mentoring relationships, our mentorship program matches current undergraduates in the Legal Studies Program and the Criminal Justice Certificate Program with alumni and community partners who provide career guidance and networking opportunities.
