Become a peer mentor

Law

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 new students and involves sharing knowledge through mentoring sessions and participating in informal activities until the end of Week 4/5 of semester. In 2021 the program will be run online for full-time students to include students who are studying offshore as well as students who are in Sydney.

What’s involved 

As a mentor, you are required to: 

  • attend one face-to-face training session via Zoom during the last week of January (Date to be confirmed)
  • 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 law.professional@sydney.edu.au

What happens next

Mentoring sessions
