Campbell Law School

Peer Mentor Program

The Campbell Law School Peer Mentor Program aides the law school in fulfilling its mission of creating an intensely personal community. The program, which began during the 2011-12 academic year, matches incoming first-year students with volunteer second- and third-year peer mentors who help them adapt to the Campbell Law community and the law school environment. Peer mentors are heavily involved in assisting the first-year class, beginning with orientation at the start of the academic year.

“Law school can be an isolating experience, and having people you know you can count on for advice and counsel can make all of the difference. Without my peer mentor group I can honestly say I don’t know if I could have done as well as I did last semester.” – Rebecca Mayhew

“The encouraging, familial atmosphere drew me to Campbell and the peer mentoring program exemplifies those qualities. The program is a great way for the school to demonstrate that the encouragement and friendly demeanor doesn’t end upon acceptance.” – Katie Terry
