The TBA Mentoring Committee designed the TBA Mentoring Program to foster mutually beneficial relationships between the participating attorneys, reduce the isolation experienced by some beginning attorneys, improve the quality of legal services received by clients, place renewed emphasis on the importance of professionalism, and generally benefit the legal professional as a whole.
Mentoring opportunities include events, programs, access to practice area resources and tools, peer support, professional development, and traditional mentoring matches.
