Mentor Program

The Thurgood Marshall Law Society is a perennial participant in the law student mentorship program organized by the Roger Williams University School of Law. While the program specifics change periodically according to need and interest, the typical format includes one or more “meet-and-greet”-type social events throughout the year, to which all mentors and mentees (including but not limited to TMLS members) are invited to casually network, as well as more structured, one-on-one opportunities for mentors and mentees to interact.

TMLS also offers informal mentor/mentee networking and other opportunities by and among practicing attorneys in Rhode Island and southeastern New England, across a wide array of practice areas and attorney interests.
