Travis County Women Lawyers Association is now accepting applications for our 2019-2020 Mentoring Program!
The program matches experienced Mentors with a Mentee in the first five years of practice according to respective backgrounds and legal interests. The Mentors and Mentees will develop a mentoring relationship throughout the year and will be able to discuss career and personal goals, as well as methods to improve legal skills, adjust to the challenges of law practice, and explore new legal career options.
The 9-month program requires a commitment of about one hour per month and will consist of alternating lunch CLE programs and one-on-one Mentor-Mentee meetings. The program begins in September 2019 and will conclude in June 2020.
If you are interested in participating as a Mentor (licensed 5 years or more) or as a Mentee (licensed fewer than 5 years), please complete an application (see below) or email Jane Atwood at firstname.lastname@example.org or Sherine Thomas at email@example.com to request additional information. Application materials must be submitted by September 6, 2019.
