New England Law | Boston emphasizes mentorship programs because the best advice you can get about law school often comes from those who have been there before you. Our two legal mentoring programs connect you to mentors at crucial moments—right before you start law school and when you begin to build your career strategy.

Law Student Mentorship Program

Before orientation, you will be invited to enroll in the Mentorship Program, which matches incoming first-year law students with returning ones. The Student Bar Association matches new law students with mentors based on home state, undergraduate university, areas of legal interest, hobbies, and general interests. Your mentor will get in touch with you to answer questions, provide tips on adjusting to law school, and serve as a valuable resource during your first year.

Bridge to Success Mentor Program

In your upper-class years, getting an inside perspective on the post–law school, legal landscape can give you an advantage. The Bridge to Success Mentor Program will pair you with a New England Law graduate who shares a common background, interest, geography, or practice area.

You and your mentor will get in touch throughout the year, and your mentor can answer your questions and share his or her experiences. This information can help you consider all your legal career options and can help you better position yourself for the job market.
