The McLean County Bar Association Mentoring Program was created in 2011 to pair attorneys new to the practice with those more experienced in order to supplement their legal education with practical advice and counseling.
The Mentoring Committee accepts mentor and new lawyer applications and personally matches each pair based on their qualifications.
Mentoring relationships last one year, although many pairs act as a resources for one another throughout their careers. Mentoring conversations encompass a wide variety of professional topics such as law practice management and effective client communication and personal topics including legal ethics, civility, and wellness.
Both mentors and mentees who complete the requirements of the program will receive six hours of professional responsibility CLE credit, which can be rolled over to future years.
Please contact Megan Green, the McLean County Program Administrator, for additional information about the mentoring program.
