Bar Buddies Mentorship Program April 22

  • 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Sponsored by the Office of Student Organizations

In 2012, your Bar Services Department, in partnership with the Young Lawyers Division (YLD) of the Allegheny County Bar Association, created the Bar BuddiesTM Mentorship Program (Program). The Program pairs graduating students who are preparing to sit for the bar exam with a young attorney mentor from the YLD. The Program's goal is to provide you with support and encouragement as you study for the bar examination.

For the past two years, the Program has proven to be a resounding success. We successfully matched dozens of students with young attorney mentors. The response from our students, as well as the young attorneys, has been overwhelmingly positive.

If you are interested in being matched with a Bar Buddy, please RSVP via email to Susan DePasquale at depasquale@duq.edu by Wednesday, April 16, 2014. Even if you are not ready to commit to participate in the Program, you are invited to attend this exciting, fun networking event.

This year we are planning to launch the Program as a joint event in conjunction with the Office of Student Organizations, which is hosting guest lecturer, Nicholas J. DeIuliis, Esq., president of CONSOL Energy from 4:30 - 5:30 p.m.

Mr. DeIuliis' lecture will be followed by the Bar BuddiesTM "kick off" cocktail reception on Tuesday, April 22th from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Student Lounge.
