Attorney Mentors Sought for Boyd Law Mentorship Program

Members of the bar are invited to mentor students at the UNLV William S. Boyd School of Law. The new mentorship program at UNLV Law is designed to pair a first-generation law student with an attorney in the Las Vegas area. First generation students often feel, and are, alone when trying to navigate the legal field. The purpose of this program is to bridge that gap. The attorney-mentor is someone the law student-mentee can go to for any questions they might have about law school, summer internships, practice areas, the bar exam, entry into the legal field, etc. Interested attorneys are invited to fill out the excel spreadsheet and send it to elody.tignor@ogletree.com. For more information about the mentorship program, reach out to Elody Tignor at Ogletree Deakins or Brian Wall, Associate Dean for Student Affairs, UNLV Law.
