Lawyer-To-Lawyer Mentoring Program Now Accepting Mentor and Mentee Applications
Posted on December 5, 2017
 

The CBA’s lawyer-to-lawyer mentoring program matches experienced attorneys (5 or more years) with attorneys within their first 5 years of practice (must begin the program no later than four (4) years after being admitted to the Illinois bar) for a year-long mentoring program.

The program creates opportunities for experienced lawyers to guide new lawyers in developing the practical skills and judgment needed to practice in a highly competent manner and to instill the ethical and professional values that characterize excellent lawyers.

Participating mentors and mentees receive 6 hours of Illinois professional responsibility MCLE credit upon program completion. Attendance at an orientation session (January 31, 2018 at 12 p.m.) and 8 subsequent in-person meetings between the mentoring pair is required to complete the program and receive MCLE credit.

The program guidelines and applications are available online at www.chicagobar.org/mentoring.
