Peer mentoring program

Helping you build social and academic networks

Our Peer Mentoring Program will assist you in building social and academic networks through attending a range of events with the support of a senior student who acts as a mentor, and helps you settle in.

Our students have a unique opportunity to be part of a peer mentoring program to help you get the most out of your university experience.

Your mentor

Mentors are usually senior students who work with a group of 5 to 10 mentees. We will try and match you with a mentor who is in a similar program of study (such as the LLB or JD).

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
  • being someone you can talk to about your experiences and studies.

How to join

You can join the Peer Mentoring Program at your orientation session. After the mini lectures, all students are invited to join a mentoring group. You will be taken on a tour of the Sydney Law School and have your first session with your mentor. There is no need to pre-register – just be there on the day.

If you miss the orientation session, come along to the Tug-of-War in Week 1. Introduce yourself to a mentor (who will be wearing a blue shirt with ‘Law Mentor’ printed on the back) and ask them any questions.
