Mentoring is an important part of the BYU Law experience. Each first-year student is assigned a second- or third-year student mentor through the Academic Success program, which is dedicated to helping all law students achieve academic excellence and life balance while in law school. Student mentors teach effective law school strategies through review sessions and workshops on such topics as case briefing, outlining, and exam taking. They also work with students one-on-one to improve academic performance.
Additionally, our alumni association is committed to students, and alumni frequently reach out to students to provide encouragement, support, and helpful information about career planning. Alumni are available to answer questions, review resumes, conduct mock interviews, or give advice about particular practice areas.
