On March 3, 2011, WLS mentors and mentees gathered at Seven Saints in downtown Champaign for the spring mentorship social event.
WLS provides a program for its 1L members where it matches them up with 2L or 3L members who serve as their mentors for the year. Mentors and mentees generally get together a few times per semester to discuss classes, outlining, and anything else that comes up during the whirlwind that is law school.
In addition to these informal meetings, the WLS 1L Committee plans two social events for its mentors and mentees, one in the fall and one in the spring. These events encourage students to venture off campus and take a break from studying to meet other members of WLS over dinner and drinks.
