The NCBA mentorship program was designed with three goals in mind. First, the program gives experienced practitioners an opportunity to share their knowledge and experience with their mentees. Secondly, mentees will receive the benefits of a guiding hand as they begin their legal careers. Finally, the mentees will learn the importance of becoming citizen lawyers. The end goal is to help the entire legal profession by assisting young lawyers develop good character, competence and a deeper appreciation for the responsibilities of the profession.
Sign up for the mentorship program to get or give advice about professionalism, best practices in a practice area or office management. The time commitment is minimal, and the rewards for both mentor and protégé are exceptional.

Next Steps: Once you've been assigned a mentor or mentee, please print Model Mentoring Plan. This plan will help you determine your goals and set your expectations for your mentoring relationship. The plan will serve as a guide for you and your mentor or mentee, and will keep you on track throughout the year. It also has some great ideas for meeting other attorneys in your county, unconventional learning experiences, and opportunities for you and your mentor or mentee to create a meaningful, lasting professional relationship.
