Mentoring Matters

The Young Lawyers Division is committed to encouraging lawyers to participate in mentoring programs at the local level. Currently, mentoring programs are established voluntarily by local bar associations, Inns of Court, etc.

The YLD’s Transition to Practice (T2P) committee is tasked with educating young lawyers about mentoring programs and in encouraging state-wide mentoring programs.
