Peer Mentoring Program for LLB and JD Students

The Peer Mentoring Program will help you to settle into the faculty by:

  • Meeting other students
  • Building networks and study groups
  • Understanding the University and Law school
  • Taking part in free social and academic activities

Your Mentor

The mentor will be a more senior student who will work with a group of 5-10 mentees. The aim will be to try and match you with a mentor who is in a similiar program of study. All mentors and mentees will meet at launch events for new students to be held in February. The mentor will help you by:

  • giving you information about all the services on campus
  • organising two mentoring group activities and introducing you to other students
  • inviting you to social and academic events
  • giving you general information about life in Sydney
  • providing someone you can talk to about your experiences and studies

The mentor is not responsible for:

  • tutoring
  • give you academic advice

What do I need to do to be part of the program?

All students will have an opportunity to join the Mentoring Program at their Orientation and Induction Session. After those lectures, all students will be invited to join a mentoring group and will be taken on a Law School tour and have their first session with their mentor. There is no need to pre-register – just be there on the day.

If you miss the Induction Session you can join the Mentoring Program in the first week of semester by coming along to one of the mentoring events and introducing yourself to a Mentor. (Mentors will be wearing blue shirts with "Mentor" printed on the back.)
