We are blessed to have over 550 lawyers and judges volunteer their time to serve as mentors. Our mentors reflect the diversity of our profession in terms of practice areas, employments settings, race and gender. More importantly, our mentors are among the most respected members of the profession and their communities.
Mentors have a significant impact on the professional development of the student. First, a mentor who demonstrates successful work habits, technical skills and the highest professional behaviors provides a vision of success for the law student or new associate. Second, mentors offer suggestions on how to address a variety of professionalism issues. For example, a mentor may provide insight on handling a full case load, servicing all clients with the same level of attention, treating others with civility and managing one’s own work. Third, mentors serve as an invaluable resource for a student on a wide variety of issues, ranging from technical skill development, career decisions and ethical dilemmas.
While there is room for how each mentor guides his or her student, we ask all mentors to assist in realizing the three objectives of the program:
We value personal contact with each of our mentors. If you are interested in becoming a mentor we would love to tell you more about the program. Please e-mail us at email@example.com. We look forward to the chance to talk with you!
