Mentoring & Mock Interview Programs

Mentor Programs

The UW School of Law provides a number of mentorship opportunities for practitioners interested in connecting with law students. For more information about these opportunities, email or sign up to be a mentor on Husky Landing.

Professional Mentor Program

The UW Law Professional Mentor Program pairs JD students with professional legal mentors. Professional mentors and student mentees are paired based on common characteristics such as practice area interests, undergraduate institution, or previous employment experiences. Professional mentors offer guidance and encouragement while facilitating networking and job shadowing opportunities. Professional mentors and student mentees meet throughout a calendar year.
