Are you interested in taking on a leadership role within the law school? Do you have a desire to pass on to new students the wisdom you have gained from your law school experience? Consider serving as a Peer Advisor.
Peer advisors are upper class students who primarily mentor, support, and provide leadership to 1Ls throughout their first year of law school. They are often also called upon to provide guidance to other new students as needed (transfers, visitors, and LLMs). Peer Advisors are assigned to each first-year section of day and evening students. They work with the Office of Student Affairs during our fall orientation program to introduce new students to the law school. In addition, they plan activities throughout the year to help students become acclimated to the demands of academics and student life outside of the classroom, to become familiar with resources available at the law school and on the larger campus, and to explore all that the Baltimore-Washington region has to offer them.
The application for next year’s peer advisor program will be available on this page in January of 2017. The Office of Student Affairs will be seeking applicants who are enthusiastic, exercise good judgment, are creative, and are interested in building a strong sense of community at the law school.
Please feel free to contact Michele Hayes in the Office of Student Affairs at firstname.lastname@example.org or 410.706.5235 if you have any questions.
