I posted this picture on Monday without explanation, but it is one of my favorites. Under the outstanding leadership of three upper-division students (Amy, David, and Snezhanna), our blue-shirted student mentors have done an amazing job this week of welcoming our new students to the law school. This picture is just a small group: We actually have around eighty 2Ls and 3Ls that apply to be student mentors for no compensation — other than the great benefit of forming new relationships. They have worked hard all week and have served as a welcoming presence. Their work won’t end this week — they will serve as mentors to their groups of mentees throughout the academic year (and, as history proves, beyond).
