Interested in mentoring for lawyers and law students? Interested in being mentored?


As a member of the National Legal Mentoring Consortium, I get a heads-up on what's happening in the world of mentoring and so I was recently alerted to a helpful blog post on the Illinois Supreme Court Commission on Professionalism's 2Civility blog -- An analysis by Katherine Erwin of "Approaches to Mentoring in the Legal Profession." This is a great snapshot about types of mentoring (episodic versus traditional) and resources about mentoring in the legal field.

You might also want to check out some of the other resources mentioned, including the book, "Innovative Mentoring for Lawyers and Law Students: Maximizing Relationships to Become a Successful Lawyer" to get more ideas on how mentoring can benefit the mentor, the mentee, and the legal profession at large.
