The FGV Rio Law Mentorship program aims to strengthen dialogue and guidance between student and professor, researcher, or former student inserted in the labor market, for the joint planning of actions that seek the maximum achievement of the course, personal satisfaction, and expansion of professional career prospects of the student under the mentorship. The building of the guidance relationship favors the exchange of experiences and the joint planning of actions to promote career advancement, increased self-confidence, and personal and professional satisfaction of the student under mentorship. Mentors are seen as trusted advisors, who share insights and knowledge obtained from their own experiences, in the process of personal, academic, and professional development of others at a more recent stage of their academic or professional career.
