How you can help

Law Alumni Mentorship Program

Icon: links in a chainThe Faculty of Law’s Alumni Mentorship Program is part of the "Réseau d'expertise en droit | Law Inspiration NetworK", or REDLINK, a joint project of the CDO and Student Affairs Office.

The program matches students with alumni working in a wide range of practice areas and settings as well as graduates using their degrees outside practice. The program aims to help students acquire information about professional options and make well-informed academic and career choices.

Matches are based on the students’ practice area and geographic interests. Matching is done in the summer, and students graduating 1.5 or 2 years later are given priority.

Le programme est conçu pour que les diplômés agissent comme mentors auprès des étudiants qui leur sont assignés durant une année universitaire. S’ils le souhaitent, l’étudiant et son mentor peuvent garder contact après cette année. Le programme n’a pas pour but de faciliter l’embauche de l’étudiant par l’employeur du mentor.

Si vous souhaitez vous porter volontaire, remplissez le formulaire REDLINK et cochez la première case.
