Baylor Law Pairs Students with Seasoned Lawyers in Transactional Law Mentorship Program

May 9, 2024

At Baylor Law, our Transactional Law Mentorship Program transforms the educational experience for students aspiring to specialize in transactional law. This initiative pairs interested students with accomplished lawyers from various transactional law practices for a hands-on “job shadowing” experience.

Through the program, students benefit from invaluable insights into career choices and exposure to diverse areas of transactional law. Mentors offer guidance on course selection and professional development while sharing their experiences and lessons learned throughout their careers.

The mentorship aspect of the program fosters meaningful professional relationships, giving students access to a wealth of knowledge and advice to guide them in their legal journey.

Both mentors and mentees in the program have expressed admiration for the valuable connections and experiences it offers. Here’s what a recent mentor and mentee shared regarding their involvement in the program and their connection with one another:


“It has been a pleasure to get to know Pablo over the last year, both personally and professionally, through the Transactional Law Mentorship Program. I believe Pablo has the work ethic and interpersonal skills to make him successful in his upcoming clerkship and beyond. I am thankful for the opportunity to participate in this wonderful program, and I look forward to continuing to serve as a mentor in the future to other students interested in transactional law.”

“I really enjoyed the program as it allowed me to connect with mentors such as Brian, who took an active role in mentoring me and helping me make decisions on career choices. Brian was a great help because he provided insights into how he became an in-house counsel at Chevron and helped me make a summer clerkship decision that will set me up in my career aspirations of becoming an in-house counsel myself. Brian provided feedback, asked probing questions, and was very professional and courteous whenever I would ask him questions or seek to call him. Best of all,  we discovered that we are both from the Houston area. As such, we were able to grab lunch and enjoy great Texas barbecue and each other’s company. Ultimately, I am very grateful to Professor Miller for setting up the program and allowing me to establish a lifelong connection with Brian.”
