Since September 2013, the Faculty of Law Alumni Mentorship Program has matched students entering their second year with alumni from a wide range of legal and non-legal fields. The Program, a joint project of the CDO and SAO, aims at guiding students in their academic and career choices by creating open-ended and stress-free relationships. Matches are based on the students’ needs and interests and last one academic year. (Although mentors can of course keep in touch after that!). Please note that the Alumni Mentorship Program is not for recruitment purposes.
For more information, you may contact the Program Coordinator at alumnimentors [dot] law [at] mcgill [dot] ca.
The CDO is also involved in the CaPS Mentor Program. This McGill-wide program enables you to establish contacts with a variety of professionals who provide valuable advice and guidance regarding careers, and share work experiences.
