Article: Linking mentor program to teaching professionalism

From Equipping our Lawyers: “a formal mentoring program can and should offer more than just lunch with an alumnus. A formal mentor program can be a tool to give students insight into the work of a lawyer, teach key professional skills that do not fit well into other parts of the law school curriculum, and create an intergenerational dialogue about our profession that teaches the next generation of lawyers’ professionalism at its highest levels. Since its re-opening in 2001, the University of St. Thomas School of law has required all of it students to participate in that type of program, the Mentor Externship.”  For more, click here.
