Alumni Volunteers Sought for Mentoring Program

7/30/2012 | Facebook | Twitter | Email

The Albany Law School Office of Alumni Affairs is currently seeking graduates from all geographic regions and legal practice areas to participate in the Alumni Initiative in Mentoring (AIM) program.

The AIM program, launched in 2002, matches incoming first-year law students with alumni who are willing to provide advice and guidance on the law school experience. Last year, there were 158 alumni mentoring 166 students – more than 70 percent of the class.

Once matched, mentors and students are free to communicate informally via e-mail, telephone, and/or in person. Some mentors and students communicate exclusively by e-mail or phone; others meet at offices, grab coffee, attend court proceedings, and even attend networking and social events together.

The Office of Alumni Affairs Office is planning a Welcome to AIM Reception to provide mentors and students an opportunity to meet on Sept. 13 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the law school.

To volunteer as a mentor, complete the online form, or contact the Office of Alumni Affairs at alumni@albanylaw.edu or 518-445-3220.
