Professional mentoring programs for law students

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Many universities administer programs that match students with mentors who assist the students with their academic journey. Relatively little, however, has been written about the design and administration of mentoring programs specifically for law students. Do law students have mentoring needs that differ from those of students in other disciplines? What are the benefits associated with using professionals rather than peers as mentors? How do mentoring programs benefit both law students and their mentors? What are the features of a successful program? These and other such issues are examined in this article in the context of the design, administration and evaluation of the successful law student mentoring program at the University of Queensland.
