Women's Mentoring Program Kick-Off Event at DLA Piper

The Women's Mentoring Program pairs 1Ls with alumnae in the Chicago area.
The program was founded by three 1L women in the 1990s.
Mentors meet with students at organized receptions and one-on-one.
Mentors offer advice on navigating law school and the job market.
The 1Ls have been told many times about the value of networking.
The event was at DLA Piper's offices Downtown.
Students had a chance to get to know each other better too.
Some mentors graduated several years ago, but others are recent JDs.
