Welcome to the Peer Mentorship Program

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).

Katya Rowley, Law III, understands that mentorship is extremely important to the success of every student and has been regularly involved in peer mentorship since high school. In law school, Katya has worked on a variety of panels and projects on both sides of the border aimed at easing the transition of incoming students, especially in this virtual world. She is a regular contributor and podcast host on a student run blog titled Law School Life and Beyond, which seeks to demystify the Canadian law school experience. She is also on the Executive Board of the Moot Court Board of Advocates at the University of Detroit Mercy. Katya is excited to bring her variety of experiences to the Peer Mentorship Program so that it is fulfilling for both mentors and mentees alike! 

Katya is looking forward to welcoming and supporting the incoming Windsor Law class of 2024, and encourages you to email her at lawpeermentor@uwindsor.ca!
