LGBT Bar Association of Maryland is excited to announce a new mentorship program. Attorneys who agree to participate in the program will be paired with one or more area law students or newly barred attorneys. For seasoned attorneys, the program provides an opportunity to mentor students who may be facing questions about career choices, passing the bar, and entrance into practice as LGBT attorneys. For law students and newly barred attorneys, the program will offer networking opportunities, the chance to learn about different practice areas, and the support of an attorney who was once in their shoes.
Participants in the program should meet at least once a quarter at a mutually agreeable place (we encourage mentors and mentees to get together some-where other than the attorney’s office). The Committee also plans on organizing an event each semester that will bring together all mentors and their mentees.
To participate in the program, please request an application form and return it to Angela Ruocco, LGBTMD Mentor-Mentee Program Chair. Applications will also be posted to the LGBTMD website in the near future. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis. The Committee will do its best to match mentees with mentors practicing in their areas of interest.
We will notify you of your mentor/mentee assignment as soon as possible.
If you have questions, concerns, or suggestions, please direct them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
