Professional Mentoring Program

Mentors/Future Mentors

Mentors serve as a career liaison, role-model, and professional friend.  They provide practical career insights, information about the job market, and contribute to the mentee’s cultivation of their own unique professional acumen.

Mentors can mentor current law students, recent law student graduates, or current graduate program students – such as students in the Graduate Tax Program, the Master of Science in Legal Administration Program, or the Environmental Law Graduate Program, among others.  Mentors are current or retired attorneys or judges.  Being a graduate of DU’s Sturm College of Law is NOT a requirement.  We welcome all legal practitioners who are willing to volunteer.

A recurring comment from mentors who have participated in the Program for many years is how much it has helped them learn and network.  Although mentors commit their time to help mentees, they are often surprised how much their mentees help with their own professional career development and advancement.  While mentors can share their experience with mentees, mentees can often share their knowledge of technology, electronic research methodologies, and writing trends, as a few examples. 

To participate in the Program, please complete and submit the Mentor Registration Form. Additional information about the Program is available in the “Info for Mentors” section.
