SMU Law Embraces Innovative Flash Mentoring

No other law school in Texas has something like Mustang Exchange, Baylor University comes closest with its Baylor Mentor Network, but it’s universitywide, rather than law school specific. Mustang Exchange is even unparalleled among law schools across the nation, said Abby Ruth, SMU Dedman’s director of alumni relations. In most mentoring programs, law schools take students’ information and match them with one mentor for a whole year. Instead, Mustang Exchange puts the power of finding mentors into the hands of students and allows them to choose as many mentors as they wish. The format of Mustang Exchange—running on private social networking software called Chronus—fits hand-in-glove with a generation of law students who grew up on Facebook and Twitter.
