The Mentorship Program pairs law students with practicing attorneys and business professionals. Mentors help students in their professional preparation, provide insight about what it is like to work in law and business, and answer any questions the student has on the practice of corporate law.
NYU Law students are usually interested in getting an overview of what to expect and may have specific questions about the variety of opportunities and experiences that are available to those interested in business and law. We have found that insight and advice from practicing attorneys is the most helpful way to answer some of these questions.
Attorneys participating in the program are generally NYU alumnae practicing in a wide variety of corporate areas in both legal and business settings. How often you meet or speak with your mentor is entirely up to the two of you, but we recommend that you include an opportunity to visit the office where the attorney works. This is a great chance to begin to network as you begin your legal career. Attorneys hope to answer all of your questions and provide you with advice - remember, they all had to take Civil Procedure too.
