The next poll that I am going to post is about mentoring. I am truly curious as to the extent that successful lawyers have been mentored (sponsored, supported--whatever you want to call it) along their career path to their success. A lot of discussion is currently being had on the need for more mentoring of young attorneys, but I don't recall any conversations in my ten years of talking with senior lawyers about their positive experiences with mentors. Is it just that my conversations with senior lawyers have been so narrow?
I wonder if lawyers will admit to each other (especially lawyers to their junior) that they receive help along the way.
Let's see if the poll reveals anything. Comments are welcome too. Both are anonymous.
