This event enables attorneys with five or fewer years of experience (“mentees”) to meet more experienced attorneys (“mentors”).  The program has three parts:

First, there will be a one-hour panel discussion during which our four panelists will generally discuss their career paths and how to development mentorship relationships.  One hour MCLE credit will be available to attendees.

The second portion of the event will be “speed networking.”  Similar to “speed dating,” during this portion, each mentor will be seated at a small table and mentees will move from table to table, spending a few minutes with each potential mentor.

The final portion of the event will be a half-hour reception, during with all attendees are encouraged to network in an unstructured setting.  

Mentees, please register by clicking ‘register now.’  All attorneys with five or fewer years of experience are encouraged to participate as mentees.

If you have practices six or more years and you are interested in participating as a mentor, please contact Liz Manassau at lmanassau@gmail.com.
