Get Involved with Thurgood Marshall School of Law!


This new program will match third-year law students with alumni who are willing to assist BAR candidates through this often challenging and frustrating period of preparation. Once matched, mentors and students will communicate primarily by e-mail, but may also communicate by phone or in person and more frequently as the July Bar Exam date approaches. Mentors are not expected to answer substantive law questions and are encouraged to refer students with these types of questions to an Thurgood Marshall School of Law faculty member or bar course instructor. Students will be matched with alumni mentors in March.
