JD Academic Mentoring

The Blackstone JD Academic Mentoring program offers first year JD students realistic guidance concerning legal assessments whilst fostering relationships between new students and experienced law students. Second year, penultimate and final year mentors provide advice in areas such as legal writing, legal research and examination preparation/technique.

The JD is a challenging degree regardless of prior undergraduate, professional or other experience. Blackstone recognised this and developed this mentoring program to provide support and reassurance to first year students throughout their transition into postgraduate studies.
