Minnesota Women Lawyers
Law Students: Take advantage of this unique opportunity to connect with an attorney who is excited to share her experience practicing law!
Attorneys: Be a legal leader by providing guidance to a law student who is very interested in your practice and experience in the legal profession.
Law students and attorneys will be matched in a mentoring relationship, based on student interest and attorney practice area. Given that student interest is very diverse, MWL welcomes attorneys with all levels of experience, in all geographic locations, and in all practice areas including non-traditional fields.
