Graduate Law Mentorship Programme kicks off this year
The School of Law and Government, the Alumni Office and the Careers Service are delighted to announce the launch of the 2019/ 2020 Graduate Law Mentorship Programme, which is running again this year, following the success of the last two years' programmes. It is DCU's first and only graduate to graduate mentorship programme. We are seeking alumni mentors and mentees.
Recent graduates will be matched with more senior law graduates (eg, trainee solicitor, solicitor, barrister, those employed elsewhere in the legal field, or those who have chosen alternative careers outside of law). The objective is to provide encouragement and support for graduates in considering/ planning next career steps - eg applications for internships/ traineeships, or in seeking other alternative opportunities as law graduates. As a mentor, it is a great opportunity to give back and offer any guidance, advice or insights.
The duration of the programme is seven months (from September to April). The programme is flexible in terms of time commitments, but participants are encouraged to meet at least three times (either in person or via Skype).
Mentor of the Year
Mentees will once again have the opportunity to nominate their Mentor for the prestigious Mentor of the Year Award.
The programme is open to all alumni with a background in Law, including BCL, EPL, JH and LLM students.
Registration for the 2019/20 programme is open and will close at 5pm on Friday 13th September.
The Opening Ceremony will take place at 6.30pm on 24th September, Mentors and Mentees will meet for the first time at this event.
