Women starting at Harvard Law School in Fall 2017: sign up for the Women’s Law Association Big Sister-Little Sister Mentoring Program!

The Women’s Law Association is devoted to providing support for the women of HLS in law school and beyond. The WLA Incoming Students Committee invites all incoming HLS women to sign up for its mentorship program, the Big Sister-Little Sister program! The Incoming Students Committee will match you with a Big Sister who can help make your transition to HLS easy and fun. Big Sisters are a diverse group of 2L, 3L, and S.J.D. women who remember what it’s like to be new to HLS and want to be a resource to you.

What does it mean to be a Little Sister?

  • Based on your interests, you are matched with a Big Sister who will contact you in August to answer your questions and share her experiences with you.
  • You will be invited to a Big Sister-Little Sister Kick-Off Party in the fall to hang out with your Big Sister, and to more Incoming Students Committee events throughout the year planned specifically for Big and Little Sisters.
  • Your Big Sister will stay in touch with you throughout the year to see how you are doing, offer advice, and answer any questions you may have.

How much contact you have with your Big Sister is up to you. Many Big Sisters and Little Sisters become good friends and stay in touch throughout law school and beyond. 

You can sign up to be a Little Sister herePlease sign up by Sunday, August 6th at 11:59 PM!

If you have any questions, please feel free to email the co-chairs of the Incoming Students Committee, Megan Fitzgerald ( and Kate Wiener (
