Apply to be a NAPALSA Mentor!

NAPALSA is looking for NAPABA members to serve as mentors for NAPALSA’s new Mentorship Program. The NAPALSA and NAPABA communities brim with passionate, generous, and tenacious individuals. This year, NAPALSA will be selecting and pairing a small group of NAPABA and NAPALSA members together to participate in a nationwide mentorship program that highlights NAPALSA students’ ambition for greatness and NAPABA members’ wisdom and goodwill.

As a mentor, you will guide current students as they develop crucial networking skills, plan their career, and navigate the legal world. Mentees will be expected to contact their mentor(s) at least two times before the NAPABA Convention, but are encouraged to reach out more frequently. As such, mentors will be expected to be accessible and receptive to the student. All mentorship pairs will be expected to attend a the Mentorship Gathering during the NAPABA Convention.

To be considered as a mentor, please fill out an application form here. The deadline to submit an application is Friday, May 5, 2017, at 7 p.m. EDT.

On July 10, the AABANY Membership Committee, the Young Lawyer’s Committee, the Student Outreach Committee, the Pro Bono Committee, the Real Estate Committee, and the AABANY Mentorship Program welcomed lawyers, law students, prospective lawyers, and AABANY members and non-members to a summer “Get to Know AABANY Happy Hour” at the Rubin Museum of Art’s K2 Lounge. Membership Secretary Irene Tan and Mentorship Program Coordinator David Sohn were on hand to meet and greet all attendees and spread the word about the amazing work of AABANY.
