BBA Announces New Family Law Mentoring Program

How to participate (Mentors):

The Family Law Section is launching a new pilot mentoring program. We are currently seeking experienced family law practitioners willing to offer guidance to new lawyers who are practicing family law or considering practicing family law. BBA members with five years or more of family law experience are eligible to sign-up as mentors. Mentors will be matched with a new lawyer. A mentor can offer guidance on topics like networking and business development skills, resume writing or interview prep, professionalism, general information regarding the Boston legal community and what it’s like to practice family law here. Mentors are asked to commit to connecting with their mentee 1-2 times a month for a 12-month period for this pilot programming.

Click here to complete the online sign-up form. We will begin matching mentors and mentees in mid June, and continue to make matches as new mentors and mentees sign up. The Section will host a roundtable on tips and tricks for mentoring.

How to participate (Mentees):

New or aspiring family law practitioners are invited to sign up to receive mentorship through the BBA’s Pilot Family Law Mentoring Program, which connects new lawyers to the Boston area with more senior members of Bar. 

BBA members who are less than 5 years in practice are invited to sign-up. Mentees can request mentorship and guidance on specific skills, like resume writing or interview prep, or may simply be seeking to connect with a more experienced attorney to learn about the ins and outs of Boston’s legal community.
