Law School Orientation Attorney Facilitator Documents

These documents were developed to prepare volunteer attorneys to facilitate small group discussions with law students during law school orientation. In the small group discussion rooms, the students are given a handout with three discussion scenarios that address issues of civility, ethics, diversity and inclusion, and professionalism. The attorney facilitator uses those scenarios, the discussion guide, and their own life experiences to lead the students in a group discussion.

Facilitator Guide: Includes an introduction to law school orientation, advice on encouraging discussion, and tips for facilitating the discussion scenarios.

Discussion Guide: Includes the scenarios provided to the law students as well as discussion topics and answers for facilitated group sessions.

Scenarios Handout for Students: Contains the scenarios and questions that the law student will discuss.

Pledge of Professionalism: Example pledge used at orientations for facilitator reference.
