Women's Mentoring Program

Program Overview

The Women's Mentoring Program facilitates mentoring relationships between 1Ls and alumnae by pairing first year women with alumnae mentors in the Chicago area. The program was founded in the early 1990s by three 1L women for the purpose of connecting first-year women with practicing attorneys and encouraging the development of professional relationships. We hope that the WMP enables participants to develop meaningful mentoring relationships and provides students with different perspectives on the law school and practice of law.

Mentors and mentees will attend formally-arranged events including cocktail receptions and small group luncheons and are encouraged to arrange individual meetings such as casual lunches or coffee.

Please contact Maureen McCarthy, Associate Director, Alumni Relations, at (773) 834-4411 or mmccarthy@uchicago.edu with any questions.
