What is the mentor program?
At the beginning studying law can be very tricky. The courses, the exams, and papers are different. You need to meet different expectations than you know from school or other degree courses. Therefore, students often have many questions at the beginning. We want to make the start a little easier for you. You can get a personal mentor who can answer most of your questions. The mentors are students who have already studied for several semesters and passed the midterm exams. They are happy to share their experiences with you and help you with any of your problems. However, the mentors cannot help you studying. Learning is your personal obligation. If you do not understand something from the courses, you need ask your classmates or your professor.
How does the mentor program work?
You can simply enroll yourself for a mentor. The rest will be decided and organized from the mentor himself. Most of the time you will meet up and get to know each other. Of course, you can already ask all the questions that you have on that first meeting. Under normal circumstances you would go to a bar or restaurant which depends on the mentor. Due to Corona this might not be possible. In that case the meeting will be online (for example on Skype or Zoom). After that there will be no frequent meetings. But your mentor will be happy to help you with your problems and meet up with you anytime (if Corona allows you to do so). Feel free to contact him. Some mentors will suggest other meetings, too. However, this up to the mentor himself.
How do I enroll for a mentor?
The registration is done via our faculty's own server. Therefore, it is necessary to activate your Jura login first. To do so click here. After clicking on activate (a window with the title "Reset password" will appear), please log in with your ZDV access data (sent to you by the student secretariat; username starts with zxm... for students) and enter your desired password on the following page. If the activation was successful, you will be automatically redirected to the Jura homepage. That's it! Your Jura-LoginID usually corresponds to the ZDV-LoginID.
Click here to get to the enrollment. It is going to be unlocked on November 2nd, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. For the application login you need your student ID (for example zxnus49) and your password. You can log in on the top left corner. The list shows you the mentors with the place, date and time of their first meeting. If the meeting will be online, the location is replaced by the application that will be used (for example Skype or Zoom). If we do not know the application so far it just says "Online". Sometimes there will be further information that you can see if you click on the (+/-) button. After the registration you should keep an eye on your student e-mail account. The mentor will maybe contact you there first. If you have any problems with the application or anything else you can send us an e-mail at mentorenprogramm at any time. We will help you as soon as possible. If there are not enough mentors for all students, we will organize more mentors as soon as possible. Everyone who wants a mentor, will get a mentor. @jura.uni-tuebingen.de
Missed the enrollment?
If you missed the application, this should not be a problem. Please do not enroll for a mentor group if the frist meeting already ended. Instead write us an e-mail at mentorenprogramm and we will answer you soon. @jura.uni-tuebingen.de
