Mentoring Program

LAGBAC’s mentoring program provides opportunities for LAGBAC’s student and young lawyer members to network with and learn from more experienced attorneys. At the beginning of each academic year, the mentoring program pairs experienced attorneys with law students and/or attorneys in their first two years of practice with the goal of helping students and young lawyers at the beginning of their legal careers. Mentors and mentees in the LAGBAC mentoring program aim to meet with one another once a month in hopes of developing a lasting mentoring relationship.

The program provides more experienced attorneys an opportunity to guide students and young lawyers as they begin their legal careers, helping their mentees as they enter the world of law practice, all with the perspective of an LGBT lawyer. Mentors have the unique opportunity to use their experiences and expertise to help the next generation of LGBT lawyers as they are starting out.

The program provides LAGBAC’s students and young lawyers with networking opportunities, the chance to learn more about a variety of practice areas and settings, and the opportunity to learn from an attorney who was once in their shoes. We hope that mentees in the program find relationships that last well into their professional careers.
