The Faculty Mentor Match (FMM) pairs each Whitter faculty member with a small group of entering first year students to provide personal and academic support on a regular basis throughout the 1L year. Faculty meet with their mentees at Orientation and continue to meet at least monthly to offer tips and insights on how to navigate some of the challenges that can present during any student’s first year of law school. The FMM is designed to give our students a direct line to the faculty whose knowledge and experience can often be an important source of support for those new to the law school environment. At Whittier, we pride ourselves on our close and warm community and the FMM is part of our continuing commitment to building long-lasting relationships that enhance our students’ lives.
