There will be a DJ and dance floor at the event as well as an after party for those who don’t want the night to end. It will be an evening to remember, so be sure to stay tuned for ticket sale announcements here and on our UNSW JD/PG Facebook page.

JD/PG Impact Mentoring Program

The JD/PG Impact Mentoring Program is a peer group mentoring program designed to assist new Juris Doctor and postgraduate law students in adjusting to life at UNSW Law. Its aim is to provide an informal and comfortable environment through weekly group meetings with more experienced students. This allows new students to seek advice, interact and learn from their peers.

Attend group meetings with mentors on a weekly basis (from Week 1 until Week 7). The content of the meetings will be catered to your needs and you may also request for group meetings to be organised in the CBD campus.

The JD/PG Impact Mentoring Program will be opening mentee and mentor applications for Term 3 2019 during Term 2 2019. Stay tuned here and on our UNSW JD/PG Facebook page for application announcements.

If you have any questions about the Impact Mentoring program, please contact Disha Mehta, JD/PG Mentoring Director, at jdpg.mentoring@unswlawsoc.org.

Mentee Testimonials

“My mentors shared their personal experiences with us as well as useful tips and resources on how to get through law school. It was nice to know there was someone who could relate with my problems and give advice. Also, that one hour’s meeting gave us a chance to unwind and make social connections, during a very busy first semester.”

“My mentors not only became my friends but also helped me learn how to handle the stress and made me feel confident. Most importantly, I knew someone had my back.”
