Become an E-Mentor to our students!

Many alumni wonder how, other than financially, they can give back to the Law School.

Becoming an E-Mentor is an excellent way to make a contribution to SMU and to the Dedman School of Law.

In 2005 the Office of Career Services established the Dedman Law E-Mentor Directory, a listing of SMU Law alumni who are available to advise students on practice trends, geographic areas, and other career-related topics via email.  Your time commitment could be a brief response to a student inquiry or ongoing supportive guidance.  As a mentor, in addition to helping current students avoid some of the pitfalls and perils commonly faced by new lawyers, you stay connected to the Law School and develop a chain of contact with students and alumni that can be both personally and professionally rewarding.

How the E-Mentor Directory works: Your name and contact information will not be published or widely distributed.  As a student seeks career counseling and needs specialized advice, our counselors would like to be able to give the student an email contact of a graduate who is more experienced.  Your contact information will be added to our Symplicity database and will be accessible to students and SMU alumni only through the Professional Networking feature.

If you would like to make a gift of your time and experience by becoming an E-Mentor, simply complete and submit the attached online form here
