We’ve run out of mentors.
This year we are matching 115 students. As you may know, WUCL’s program, which started in 1990, is the first attorney mentor program in Oregon. We work very hard to match students and attorneys with similar practice areas or interests.
If an attorney is interested in participating in the mentor program, he/she should email Bev Ecklund (firstname.lastname@example.org), or call 503.370.6057 which student(s) and fill out our online mentor form.
Willamette’s College of Law has the largest practitioner-student mentor program in Oregon. Our mentor program pairs first-year students with approximately 150 lawyers and judges, who serve as mentors throughout the students’ three years at the College of Law. The program enables students to form a personal relationship with a legal professional, who provides advice and insight into the practice of law.
The mentor relationship serves as the first building block in a rich network of connections students will make throughout their legal careers. While the Willamette alumni network is strongest in Oregon and Washington, Career & Professional Development can connect graduates with alumni from across the country.
