Oscar Speeches and the Mentor Program

If you listened to any of Oscar acceptance speeches Sunday night, you may have noticed that the award winners shared a common theme in each of their acceptance speeches: Each thanked a specific individual that helped them learn their craft and the industry.

Mentors are an integral part of an individual’s professional and personal growth. Being a mentor is an honor, and one of the most rewarding experiences for an established attorney.

The 28th Judicial District provides a Mentoring Program for younger attorneys in practice to develop an ongoing relationship with an established practitioner. The Program pairs mentors and mentees that share common interests, location, practice area. The Program introduces mentor/mentees, follows up, and provides opportunities for the pair to get together. The end result is to help the entire legal profession by assisting young lawyers to develop good character, competence and a deeper appreciation for the responsibilities of the profession.
