Mentorship Program

The MRWBA continues its long tradition of mentoring Women Law Students Association members at the University of Richmond School of Law. Last year over 40 students requested mentors. MRWBA also matches new attorneys with seasoned attorney mentors for a year. Each year, participants in the program are invited to a fall reception with the Women Law Students Association at the University of Richmond and a spring reception hosted by MRWBA. Mentors can also bring student mentees to monthly MRWBA luncheons at the discounted member rate.

“MRWBA paired me up with a great mentor who worked in my desired practice area. Beginning with my first year of law school, we met every couple of months for lunch, and we’re still in touch after 8 years. She has been a great resource to me, a friend, and now, a colleague.” – Joanna Suyes
