NYCLA's Mentoring Program

The overwhelming number of voters in the latest poll are interested in participating in NYCLA's pilot mentoring program. We at the Task Force on Professionalism are very excited about this program.

NYCLA’s Task Force on Professionalism conducted a study on ways legal proficiency and professionalism can be improved. Interviews and focus groups were held at large, mid-size and small firms. A key theme that emerged from the interviews and focus groups was the need for mentoring of young attorneys as the best way to increase professionalism among lawyers and increase their professional satisfaction. To that end, the Task Force and NYCLA’s CLE Institute has developed a Pilot Mentoring Program.
