NUS Law Alumni Mentor Programme (LAMP)

 

PROGRAMME DESCRIPTION AND PURPOSE

The NUS Law Alumni Mentor Programme (LAMP) links first and second year NUS Law students and LL.M. students with young alumni, who can provide insights and guidance to the practice of law. At the same time, we hope the programme will provide an opportunity for greater engagement with our alumni.

Mentors and Mentees will be asked to commit to the programme for a year, with the expectation of meeting once a semester in person. We understand of course that our Mentors are busy people, and meetings can take place at their offices if appropriate. The hope is that Alumni Mentors will provide first hand experiences and insights on the legal profession, as well as practical guidance, encouragement and support. Student Mentees will have the opportunity to become better equipped to make well-informed decisions about their professional development.

MENTOR/MENTEE EXPECTATIONS
  • Be available to meet at least once a semester in person (unless the Mentor is stationed overseas). Semester 1 runs from August to November; Semester 2 runs from the beginning of January to May.

  • Attend planned events, including the launch of LAMP and related career workshops and talks.

  • Be open about your experiences (be it work, education or life in general) so that the programme can offer a unique and realistic perspective to the practice of law.
