Orientation Committee Co-Chairs
Hi Class of 2024,
Welcome to UNB Law. On behalf of the Orientation Committee, we’re thrilled to have you joining the UNB Family!
Over the next couple weeks there will be a lot of firsts. Your first law class, the first time that you’ll meet each other, and for a lot of you, the first time you’ll be spending time at UNB. Make sure to take in and appreciate these firsts – although it won’t always feel like it, we promise that your first year will fly by. While it’s easy to get consumed in academics, continue to make time for yourself, your friends, and your colleagues. Be sure to spend as much time with your classmates as possible, they’ll be your co-workers, lifelong friends, and your support system as you navigate yourself through law school and into your professional career.
Your first two weeks are incredibly memorable. As your orientation committee, we will be there to oversee the experience and to provide a loose structure – but these two weeks are ultimately all about you meeting and building relationships with your classmates. These are the people that will support you and get you through the challenging and rewarding next three years. That being said, we’ll be around for questions, guidance, and tips all year – please feel free to reach out to us at any time, we’re always happy to help!
You will also soon be paired with your peer mentor groups. They will help you transition to what is a new field for everyone, and they will continue to be a resource for you throughout the year. We have recently chosen the peer mentors for your class - you have a fantastic group who are keen to meet you.
We’re excited to welcome you to campus in a few short weeks. Please message us if you have any questions. We are excited to see you soon!
- Ben and Alex
