Law students, recent graduates and newly admitted attorneys had the opportunity to meet judges and attorneys during the National Association of Women Judges 2018 MentorJet program at WMU-Cooley Law School’s Auburn Hills campus. The speed mentoring format allowed those in attendance to meet with a variety of legal professionals and gain knowledge about working in the field of law.
