MENTORSHIP PROGRAM – 2016

KABA Mentorship Program Description

 

KABA’s Mentorship Program is designed to create mentorship “families” which connect law students, junior attorneys, and senior attorneys. The program is intended to:

  1. Foster relationships among KABA law students, entry level attorneys and more experienced attorneys, providing the student with a variety of perspectives on law school, the bar, and the practice of law; and
  2. Foster relationships between more experienced attorneys and entry level attorneys who may be new to a particular practice or who are navigating the first few years of practice.

Mentorship Families will be matched based on common professional goals and interests. Mentors within the families will include government attorneys, law firm partners, judges, public interest lawyers, and in-house counsel.
