Mentor Jet to connect legal professionals, students

February 16, 2013

A networking version of speed dating will take place at Wayne Law Feb. 21 , when about 30 attorneys and judges from a variety of practice areas will sit down across a table from Wayne State University law students, who will get five minutes with each mentor to ask questions and get advice from each professional before moving on to the next.

Mentor Jet starts at 5:30 p.m. in the Partrich Auditorium, and after the “speed mentoring sessions,” participants can attend a reception with food and beverage to continue socializing and networking.

Thirty-sixth District Court Judge Katherine Hansen will host the event, which is sponsored by Wayne Law’s Career Services Office in conjunction with the National Association of Women Judges, Detroit Metropolitan Bar Association and Women Lawyer’s Association of Michigan – Wayne Region.

Mentor practice areas and settings include in-house counsel, the courts, law firm associates and partners, prosecuting attorneys and solo practitioners. Students will receive the biographies of participating attorneys prior to the event.

The event is limited to 45 students. To attend, RSVP on Symplicity by clicking on the events tab.
