JD/PG Impact Mentoring Program

JD/PD Impact Peer Mentoring

About the program

The JD/PG Impact Mentoring Program is a peer mentoring program offered by the UNSW Law Society that assists incoming Juris Doctor (JD) and Postgraduate (PG) students with successfully transitioning into law school.  First year students are paired with senior mentors who are trained to help navigate the demands of law student life in a friendly group setting. The program aims to support students holistically by emphasising the importance of building a healthy social network, and provides valuable opportunities to create strong social bonds through participation in weekly group meetings. Each term ends on a high note with an informal closing event complete with catering and social activities.
