We Need Mentors!

One hundred percent (100%) of the people who responded to our last survey "Would you like to be a mentor or mentee in a nycla-sponsored mentorship program?" responded that they could use the assistance of a mentor. That tells me two things: (1) most of the people who are reading this blog (or at least voting in the survey) are in the earlier stages of their career; and (2) those attorneys need to talk to people with more experience than themselves to help them navigate their way to their career goals.

We would like to hear from more seasoned attorneys to get a mix in the dialogue so I am dedicating the next survey to a topic that is likely close to the hearts of those who have been practicing for more than 10 years (and in some cases, a lot more): Mandatory retirement.

I voted for a NYCLA sponsored mentorship program. I could use some help in figuring my way around the law world. But I am a little disappointed that no potential mentors voted on the survey. It seems that associates are left to swim solo.
