The mission of the SEALS Mentor Committee is to match each SEALS New Scholar with a faculty mentor in her or his subject matter area at another SEALS member or affiliate school. Mentors provide their New Scholars with advice and guidance on their presentations, offer advice on research to be presented and read any article drafts (if the New Scholars so elect), attend their New Scholars’ presentations at SEALS, and provide them with feedback afterward. New Scholars and Mentors find the experience a very rewarding way to develop new relationships within the legal academy.
Here are the SEALS Mentor Guidelines.
Greetings. We are back from another wonderful SEALS Conference, and the Mentor Committee would like to thank all of this year’s mentors, mentors-at-large, and new scholars. We’re also starting on next year’s program already. The New Scholar program continues to grow in popularity, and in order to make it as strong as possible it’s important for us to maintain a list of existing mentors, as well as identify new mentors who are committed to enhancing the quality of this program. If you were not a mentor this last year, you did not sign up during SEALS this year to be one, and would like to be one, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, your area(s) of expertise, and your contact information (phone, email, address). If you signed up to be a mentor at SEALS this year, you do not need to resend your information. If you have been a mentor, but don’t want to be one again, you can also email us that information. Again, thanks for making the SEALS New Scholar program such a big success. We think it’s one of SEALS greatest strengths.
