Mentor Social: Thursday at Gracie’s

If you are confirmed to attend the Mentor Program Kickoff Social, Anneliese has emailed you at the address you provided in your RSVP.  Read on for details, including dress code.

What:  Attorney-Student Mentor Program Kickoff Social at Gracie’s, 326 S. West Temple, Salt Lake City.  Heavy appetizers provided.  Cash bar. 

When: Thursday, August 16, 5:00-7:00 p.m.


1) Attorneys from the community will attend, as will 2) students who have filled out a questionnaire to be matched with a mentor AND have gotten an email from Anneliese.  If you filled out a questionnaire, but haven’t gotten a confirmation to the email address you used in filling out the questionnaire, then you are on a waitlist.  Those on a waitlist will be notified tomorrow as to whether you can attend.  We had about 80 students RSVP so far.

Dress: Business casual.  It will be warm, so dress accordingly, but remember that you will be interacting with and making impressions on attorneys and fellow students. 

Tips: Say hello and introduce yourself to those you haven’t met.  Ask attorneys about what they do, where they are from, and any advice they have for you as you make your way through law school.  Do not ignore those who do something different than what you think you want to do!  If you hit it off with an attorney or get some good advice, make a mental note of their name.  Send them a thank you email, and let PDO know with whom you had good rapport.   In addition to attorneys, use this as a chance to get to know your fellow students!  They will be your colleagues for a long time. 

NOTE: You will not be matched with your mentors by the Mentor Social.  PDO will send out that information when the matching process is complete.
