Recognizing that his students needed "real world" experience in the first year of law school, Lawyering Process Professor Michael G. Massey initiated the program with his two sections of the Lawyering Process class in 2005. During the next year, he worked with Jim Mulligan and Sal Quintana from the Sturm College of Law Alumni Council, and the program expanded to several LP sections. In the 2007-2008 academic year, DU law alumni and other lawyers in the Denver legal community are mentoring more than half of the entering class. "The goal," Professor Massey says, "is to have a mentor for every member of the entering class. No other law school in the country has such a program." With your help, that goal will be achieved in the 2008-2009 academic year.
"The goal is to have a mentor for every member of the entering class.
No other law school in the country has such a program."
Mentors have the ability to have a remarkable professional influence on a law student’s career, offering advice on classes, employment opportunities, ethics and even the bar exam. It is also a way in which lawyers can contribute to the overall improvement of the legal profession.
