William and Mary Black Law Students Visit Madison Monthly as Mentors

Norfolk Commonwealth’s Attorney Greg Underwood and mentors from the Black Association of William and Mary Law School met with Madison students to listen, encourage and inspire them to reach their academic goals. The William and Mary law students visit Madison on a monthly basis to mentor the students and discuss career goals and the field of law.

As part of the school’s mentoring focus, Lucy Zaleski, Madison’s Transition Specialist, garnered the support of other volunteers like Lauren Welsch, a Ph.D. candidate at ODU, who has been mentoring for three years and meets once a week for an hour with her mentee to provide academic and mentor support.
