Request for Attorney Mentors for WLALA Law Student Mentor Program
WLALA's increased presence in the legal community over the years has resulted in increased interest and participation among the local law schools. WLALA needs attorney mentor volunteers for its Law Student Mentor Program. WLALA's Law Student Mentoring Program pairs law student members with lawyer members to encourage and facilitate the development of women law students. Mentors and mentees are matched based on interests and background, where possible. The program is flexible; mentors and mentees choose when and how to stay connected with one another, whether it is through e-mail, telephone chats, in-person meetings, or a combination of the above. Many participants find that the one-on-one mentoring relationship becomes a long-term friendship with mutual benefits.
