Did you forget to turn in your mentorship application? 
Thank you to all students who have applied for the mentorship program that links 1Ls with upper-class students!  We've gotten a tremendous response, especially from 1Ls.  However, we do still need more upperclass members to participate.  If you're still interested in being either a 1L mentee or a 2L, 3Ls, or 4L mentor. please contact Heather Fritsch, Mentoship Coordinator ( as soon as possible.  Matches will soon be made, so watch your e-mail for a message about your mentee/mentor. We encourage all participants in this program to come to our Welcome Reception on Oct. 1st so you can meet each other face-to-face!  

REMINDER: Have you paid your membership dues yet? 
Please remember to pay your dues for the 1998-'99 year.  A $10.00 check made payable to Women in Law can be left in the WIL mailbox on the 2nd Floor.  Payment of dues allows you to participate in elections and mentorship porgrams and receive discounts on WIL merchandise.  Dues are used to fund programs and social events throughout the year, as well as fellowships we give to students over the summer to help pay for expenses when they volunteer with a public service agency.  Thank you!
