Mentors Needed for CBA Lawyer-To-Lawyer Mentoring Program

The CBA’s lawyer-to-lawyer mentoring program matches experienced attorneys (practicing 5 or more years) with attorneys within their first 5 years of practice for a year-long mentoring program. The CBA is currently seeking mentors for the program. You must be a CBA member to participate.

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 receive 6 hours of Illinois professional responsibility MCLE credit upon program completion. Attendance at an orientation session (held February 16, 2021 at 12 p.m. over Zoom video conferencing) and 8 subsequent meetings between the mentoring pair is required to complete the program and receive MCLE credit.

Due to concerns about COVID-19, those participating may hold any or all of the required minimum 8 meetings over the one-year term through video conference. This exception to the in-person requirement is in place through at least June 30, 2021, and may be further extended in accordance with guidance from the Illinois Supreme Court.
