Institutionalized Mentoring

A sure sign of a growing, sustainable trend is when an ethics opinion is written about that trend. So is the case with mentoring.  Oregon (which was preceded by Georgia and Utah, with other states in the works) has instituted a mandatory mentoring requirement for all attorneys who pass the Oregon state bar, starting this summer.  And just in time before any mentor-mentee partnerships break any rules, the Oregon bar issued a formal opinion on ethics issues arising in mentoring relationships and use of LISTSERVs. For the full text of that opinion, click here: http://www.osbar.org/_docs/ethics/2011-184.pdf
