 Volunteer: Become a Coffee Connector

In 2013, alumnus Jaret L. Davis, JD ’99, introduced the Coffee Connectors Network - an initiative to promote a more practical approach to foster one-on-one interactions between Miami Law alumni and law students. This program is unique in that it is NOT a traditional mentoring program. Instead, this is a ‘connector initiative’ to infuse law students into various practices and geographic locations. Iinvolvement may be as simple as forwarding a resume to a colleague who may be in the market to hire a young lawyer, discussing your work or enjoying a cup of coffee for 20 minutes with a student to give him/her some tips and/or referrals to contact. If you are an employer and an alum, consider participating.
