Mentoring Program

LAGBAC’s mentoring program provides opportunities for LAGBAC’s student and young legal professionals to network with and learn from its more experienced members. At the beginning of each academic year, the mentoring program pairs legal professionals with law students and/or attorneys in their first five 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 on a regular basis 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 legal field, all with the perspective of an LGBTQ+ professional or ally. Mentors have the unique opportunity to use their experiences and expertise to help the next generation of LGBTQ+ professionals as they are beginning their career.

Throughout the year, LAGBAC’s Mentorship Program hosts events connecting students, attorneys, judges and more to promote networking, business development, professional responsibility, and scholarship/employment opportunities. The Program’s annual Meet the Bench series provides unprecedented access to judges from all levels of the judiciary, allowing students and attorneys to meet and learn from some of the highest ranking members of the legal profession. No matter how young, old, or experienced, everyone can benefit from being involved in LAGBAC’s Mentorship Program.
