The National Alumni Association,
Graduates of the Last Decade (GOLD) and the Office of Alumni Affairs are
excited to invite you to be a mentor for the Bridging the Gap (BTG)
ABOUT THE MENTORING PROGRAMBTG assists third-year students
by matching them one-on-one with alumni mentors who provide general advice on
the post-graduation landscape covering everything from job search and
interviewing tips to Bar exam prep, making introductions for graduates moving
to a new location for work, and general advice for new attorneys
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
We are seeking Alumni from all
geographic regions and practice areas (including non-legal practice) to
participate in this program. As a mentor, you are not only able to
provide advice about the post law school experience, but your involvement
demonstrates the strong network of Albany Law School alumni.
We ask that mentors make a
yearlong commitment to the program.
