The Mentor Externship Program

is a key component of a St. Thomas legal education, which emphasizes professional formation and the fostering of relationships. This award-winning, nationally recognized program pairs each law student, each year of law school, with a legal professional working in their interest area to help them gain work experience, develop a network and navigate the legal field.
