Family Law Section Mentoring Committee

As part of the Family Law Section's continuing commitments to improve attorney professionalism and competence, the Section offers two types of mentoring programs: Peer-to-Peer and Law Student. The Peer-to-Peer Mentoring Program provides attorneys who are less experienced in the area of Family Law with the ability to connect and consult with an experienced Family Law attorney for guidance and support. If you are interested in participating as a Mentor or Mentee in the Peer-to-Peer Mentoring Program, please click here.

The Law Student Mentoring Program allows current students from regional law schools to connect with Family Law attorneys. The Mentors provide their Mentees with valuable knowledge and insight into the legal profession, while also providing practical advice on conquering the challenges of law school. Though the formal law student mentoring relationship is expected to be for one academic year, many Mentors and Mentees retain their connections for much longer. If you would like to participate as a Mentor or a Mentee in the Law Student Mentoring Program, please contact one of the Co-Chairs below.
