Alumni Mentor Program: Early Interview Week (EIW)

The Alumni Mentoring Program: Early Interview Week (EIW) is a collaborative effort between the Career Development Office and the Development and Alumni Engagement Office. Our goal is to provide our rising 2L students with mentors to prepare them for interviews with private sector law firms. Mentors are matched with a student via the Berkeley Law Connect platform. Mentors are asked to meet with their mentee in June to discuss the student’s career objectives and the law firm interview process. A mock interview and feedback session takes place in late July as final preparation for EIW, which is generally held the first week of August.

Mentors are matched with a student via the Berkeley Law Connect platform. Mentors are asked to meet with their mentee in June to discuss the student’s career objectives. A second “check-in meeting” takes place in August.
