Alumni/Student Mentor Program Application

Purpose
Create supportive student/alumni relationships focused on maximizing the Nebraska Law experience, professional and career goal-setting, and developing a professional network for the student.

Program Highlights
  • Linking relationships between two professionals who share a tie to Nebraska Law with learning and professional development as the purpose;
  • Program is for the 9-month duration of the academic year;
  • Mentoring relationships will be fostered by the two individuals but programming support will be provided by the College of Law.
  • Mentors do not have to be local. We welcome mentors from across the state and the country. Mentors are encouraged to have at least one face-to-face interaction with their mentees, but this interaction could take place via Skype or FaceTime.
Expectations

Communicate twice monthly during the 9 month-period of the program at mutually agreed upon times and in a manner that works for both mentor and mentee. These communications can take place in person, via phone, or via email. It would be ideal for mentor and mentee to meet in person at least once, but that is not a strict requirement of the program.
