RALEIGH, N.C. - Campbell Law Assistant Dean for External Relations Megan West will present on mentorship for the North Carolina Advocates for Justice (NCAJ) on Thursday, May 15. West’s presentation is a part of the NCAJ’s “Professionalism for New Admittees” two-day, 12-hour continuing legal education event.
West will speak to the importance of seeking guidance from experienced lawyers, offer advice on how to be a good mentee, and provide examples and counsel on professionalism.
“Mentorship is a two-way street,” said West. “Not only is it important for new legal professionals to seek out mentors, but it’s equally necessary that they serve as good mentees and present themselves as professionals. I look forward to sharing with the NCAJ and the new legal professionals within our community.”
A 2014 Triangle Business Journal Women in Business award winner, West oversees Campbell Law’s alumni relations, career services, communications and marketing, and development departments while managing the Campbell Law Connections mentorship program.
West, a 2010 Campbell Law graduate, joined the law school administration as the director of alumni relations & annual giving in September 2012. She was elevated to her current role this past January. West served as an associate attorney at Martin & Jones, PLLC in Raleigh prior to returning to her alma mater.
Outside of her professional obligations, West is vice president of Wake Women Attorneys and serves on the Capital City Clauses Board of Directors. She has also served as a peer mentor for the Campbell University Lundy-Fetterman School of Business Young Women in Transition program.
