Student Ambassador Program
The Student Bar Association's Diversity Committee is working closely with Dean Cramer this semester to help integrate the LL.M. and exchange students into our school. Let's make our new classmates feel welcome! We invite you to join this year's Student Ambassador Program! LL.M. and exchange students are invaluable assets to our law school, but because of their short stay and some cultural and linguistic challenges, these students often have a difficult time integrating into our community. Many of these students are lawyers in their countries; some with many years of legal experience. In this steadily growing global economy, they are a great resource to learn about the legal landscape abroad and about potential internships or jobs in another country. Additionally, they can be excellent language exchange partners, often become friends for life, and they are important contacts if traveling abroad. In an effort to encourage integration and the exchange of ideas among the J.D., LL.M., and exchange students, Washington University School of Law and the Student Bar Association's Diversity Committee are inviting interested JD students to become Student Ambassadors. Each Student Ambassador will be responsible for meeting with assigned students at least twice per month to provide academic advice on note-taking, outlining, exam-taking, legal writing, and any other questions about school or life in the U.S.; providing regular feedback via email to Dean Cramer; and participating in at least one social event with assigned students, e.g. bar review, happy hour, having coffee somewhere, etc. HOW TO APPLY TO THE STUDENT AMBASSADOR PROGRAM: Please submit a resume and short statement of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com no later than October 3.
