Since 2010, the Peer Mentorship Program has been helping ease the transition into 1L by matching first-year students with upper-year mentors who share similar academic and social interests. The program is administered through the Student Services Office under the direction of Francine Herlehy, Assistant Dean (Student Services) and Professor Donna-Marie Eansor, Faculty Advisor.
Tasha Stansbury, Law III, will act as Student Coordinator for the program for the 2019-2020 academic year. Building on the many successes of previous leaders (including Jacqueline Goslett, Armin Sethi, Soni Bal, Fariya Walji, Marla Rosenblatt-Worth, Jenna Ward, Francesca D'Aquila-Kelly, Brandon Track, and Amanda Hawkins), Tasha will play a key role in administration and development of this program.
Tasha has been regularly involved in peer mentorship since middle school and is extremely active in the Windsor Law community. She has been participating in the legal clinic practice programs since 1L, and volunteered with Pro Bono Students Canada throughout her first two years of law school. You are sure to see her advertising events for OUTLaws, the Canadian Association of Refugee Lawyers (CARL), and Women of Colour Legal Alliance of Windsor (WOCLAW); advocating for access to justice through Level Justice; and fundraising for survivors of sexual violence with the 2020 production ofthe Vagina Monologues. Tasha is excited to use her diverse academic, professional, and personal background to help mentors and mentees get the most out of the program.
