Mentoring Program Update

The Wellness Committee is seeking a few good mentors who are willing to commit an hour a month to advising a new lawyers in our Bar. We have found that good mentoring is invaluable for new attorneys!

A mentor is an advisor, trainer, and teacher. A good mentor is both a good person and a good lawyer. In the legal arena, a mentor is someone who is able to guide a new attorney in the practice of law, give him or her instructional advice about local laws and customs, and help the mentee to grow personally, as well as professionally.

Experienced lawyers who would like to ensure the next generation of lawyers is competent and professional may enroll in our mentor program. The mentor will identify particular areas in which he or she has expertise so that the Bar can match the mentor with a mentee who has goals which are reflective of the mentor’s experience. Mentors will help the mentees through current issues of concern in the profession, approaches to ethical dilemmas, career goals, types of legal practice, law practice management issues, and how to achieve a work-life balance.
