The Student Peer Mentor Program in its Trial Year - A Mentor's Perspective
AbstractIn 1994, the Student Peer Mentor Program was trialled in the Bachelor of Laws course at the Queensland University of Technology. As part of the program, students such as myself who had successfully completed Torts and Contracts, were employed as student peer mentors in one of these subjects. This paper examines the program from my perspective as a mentor in Torts. I give some personal insights about my experience as a peer mentor as well as discussing the strengths and weaknesses of the program. Finally, I make suggestions about the development of the program and its potential in future years.
