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How the E-Mentor Directory works: Your name and contact information will not be published or widely distributed.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.
