Mentoring Program

The Corporate Institute Mentoring Program provides law students with an opportunity to learn about business and business law careers from University of Minnesota Law School Alumni. The Mentoring Program is inclusive in all respects.

We encourage potential alumni mentors to participate if they have business-related experience most broadly defined. This includes such disparate careers such as entrepreneur, litigator, executive, tax accountant, and lobbyist, among others.

We encourage students to use the Corporate Institute Mentoring Program even if they lack exposure to business or business law. We want them to explore. We hope they will find inspiration in career conversations with their mentor alums.
