Raising the Bar: Why We Should & How We Can Mentor Law Students & New Attorneys (CLE)

The Webster-Batchelder and Gajarsa American Inns of Court have partnered with the University of New Hampshire School of Law, New Hampshire Bar Association, and New Hampshire Women’s Bar Association to present a free comprehensive two-part program on mentoring to promote professionalism and excellence in the practice of law.

Mentor Training (for attorneys only)
5:30 – 7:30 p.m. on October 7, 2014, at UNH School of Law (sign-in opens at 5:00 p.m.)
Complimentary hors d’oeuvres, cash bar (for 21+)
Open to all members of the Webster-Batchelder and Gajarsa AICs, NHWBA, and NHBA Mentors

Do you remember what it was like starting out as an attorney, whether hanging a shingle, or learning to navigate practice at a firm?  Do you wish you would have had someone to turn to for those sticky questions and judgment calls?  Were you lucky enough that you did? 

Topics addressed in this session will include:

  • The importance of mentoring to the legal profession
  • Common ethical issues faced by less experienced practitioners
  • Practical tips and skills for effective mentoring

1.5 hours of CLE credits (.5 ethics) expected, followed by a social.  During the social, participants will have the opportunity to sign up for the Speed Mentoring Session on 10/14/14, and indicate their preferences, if any, regarding mentoring topics they’d like to discuss with UNH law students.

Attorneys from NHWBA, WB AIC, or Gajarsa AIC who are interested in participating should RSVP directly to their affiliate organization (NHWBA, WB AIC or Gajarsa AIC).  Attorneys from the NHBA who are interested in participating should contact Kate DeForest at Sulloway & Hollis at kdeforest@sulloway.com.  Attorneys should NOT RSVP directly to UNH Law.
