Become a peer mentor


The Sydney Law School Peer Mentoring Program starts during the Welcome session and runs during Semester 1 of the JD or LLB programs. The program matches mentors with a group of 5-10 students and involves sharing knowledge through mentoring sessions and participating in informal activities such as the pizza lunch in Week 3 or Week 4 of semester.

What’s involved 

As a mentor, you are required to: 

  • attend two face-to-face training sessions - Monday 10 December and Wednesday 6 February 2019 
  • mix with other mentors to share your knowledge and experiences
  • conduct at least three mentoring sessions with your mentee group
  • lead your group through discussions to provide information, tips and direction on life as a Sydney Law student
  • be a point of contact for your mentees during their first semester of study.

For more information, contact the Professional Law Programs Team at


You can register to be a mentor if you are in at least your second year of study in the Sydney Law School.

You need to be available to attend the training and mentoring sessions.

How to register 

Towards the end of each year, you can nominate as a volunteer mentor for the following year.
