Weldon Mentorship Program

The Weldon Mentorship Program provides students and recent grads with an opportunity to gain valuable insight into the legal profession through meeting one-on-one with alumni. It's an opportunity to give back to Schulich Law in a meaningful way, while helping to shape the next generation of legal professionals.

How to get involved

Each spring, alumni mentors and student mentees sign up on our mentorship platform and are asked a few short questions relating to their location and area of practice. Matches are then made based on this criteria.
