Serve as a Mentor to an International Student

If you are an upper-level student, consider serving as a Chicago Mentor to help orient one of our international LL.M. students to life in Chicago and the U.S. This pilot program matches 2L, 3L, and 4L J.D. students with new LL.M. students. As a Chicago Mentor, you would be available to answer questions about life in Chicago, public transportation, social events, etc. You could even get together with your mentee for lunch, invite him or her to a party at your apartment or home, or take them to a Chicago neighborhood festival.

If you are interested in being a Chicago Mentor, sent an email to Fife Osikanlu ( no later than Friday, February 1, with the following information:

- Your name and email address
- Your year at Kent
- If there is a language that you speak/read/write
- If there is a particular country or area of the world that interests you
- Your age and if you are male or female
- What type of law interests you
- What neighborhood in Chicago (or suburbs) you live in
- Anything else that you think would be helpful in matching you with an international student.
