We strongly believe that our students can benefit from the personal experiences of our alumni as UCLA School of Law students and professionals.
We invite our alumni to mentor new UCLA law students through the Alumni Mentor Program. The program matches first year students with professionals
who act as role models and are available to share information with students on topics ranging from insights into practice area and profession to
interviewing and networking skills. In past years, more than 200 mentors were matched with students and many of those mentors return to the program
year after year, saying "It was a great experience. I found it was a two-way street, i.e., I learned things from my mentee as well as sharing my
experiences with her;" "it's always refreshing, after having practiced law for a few years, to meet someone who is still enthusiastic about the
prospect of a legal career;" and "I definitely want to participate next year."
The Alumni-Mentor program begins in the fall, when the entering first year class is given the option of participating, on a first-come, first-served
basis. A student who has an interest in a particular area of law, geographic area, academic pursuit or other special interest will be matched with
an alumni mentor with such a background. To facilitate the initial meeting between mentors and their students, the school hosts a Kick-Off Reception
in the fall. Throughout the year, the students and alumni are encouraged to communicate by telephone, e-mail, or, if practical, in person; some
mentors in the past enjoyed bringing their mentees to their offices, to alumni events and to court hearings. While we do recommend that the students
and alumni have at least three or four meetings of one type or another during the school year, there is no set requirement. Mentors may give as much
time and effort to the program as they wish. We encourage you to participate in this Alumni-Mentor Program and ask that you take a few moments to sign
up and complete the form.
If you have any questions about becoming an Alumni Mentor, or if you would like to volunteer, please contact Sarai Crane, Director of Alumni Relations,

Please feel free to contact the LawNET IT Department if you have
any questions. We are happy to help you in whatever way we can.
