1 Citation (Scopus)


This article proposes a mentoring scheme as a way of inculcating ethical values on law students. Its goal is to assess (i) how a mentoring scheme develops ethical values amongst appointed mentors, (ii) identification of core ethical values developed within the mentoring scheme and (iii) how ethical values translate to the mentors’ personal and professional lives in preparation for diverse global cultures, ethnicities and identities that encompass varied social, political and legal constructs. Exposure to diverse cultures and ethnicities, and becoming sensitive to these diversities, is becoming necessary in today’s global world. The recent International Student Barometer is a testament of the success of the Newcastle mentoring scheme in integrating international students with other students within the university.
