One of Rutgers-Camden’s greatest career resources are its alumni! Students are eager to learn more about practice areas and settings and how to navigate the legal market and to become successful members of the legal community. Listed below are some of theways you can help students and recent graduates successfully transition into the legal community.
Volunteer to mentor a law student or recent graduate! Each year we match students and very recent graduates with mentors who help introduce their mentees to the legal profession. We are always looking to add new mentors to this program and are particularly in need of out-of-state mentors to mentor students and recent alumni who plan to practice out-of-state. To sign up for this program, please fill out a mentor form and submit it to Gwen Tolbert at firstname.lastname@example.org or (fax) 856-225-6184.
Each Spring, alumni volunteer their time to give students feedback on their resumes and interviewing skills. Employers of all practice settings are needed to conduct these on-campus mock interviews. If you would like to volunteer your time to this program, please email Gwen Tolbert at email@example.com.
