NLD is pleased to offer third year law students an opportunity to connect with practicing attorneys through its Law Student Mentoring Program. The law student mentoring program structured in a “circle” format so that it is consistent with the NLD Mentoring Circles Program, creating an easier transition for third year law students from education to practice. A circle is made up of approximately 5 students and 2-3 attorneys who have been in practice since before June of 2011, based on a shared practice area interest. The practice areas available are: Bankruptcy, Criminal, Family, General Civil Litigation, Real Property, Trusts & Estates, and Undecided. The Undecided group will have a mix of practice areas for those students who haven’t yet determined which area they are interested in practicing.

The goal of the format is to ease the burden on the participating attorneys, allowing multiple forms of guidance so that if one attorney is busy, the other attorneys involved can step in and continue the mentorship. For the third year law students, the circles allow interaction with students from other San Diego law schools, and provide great opportunity to meet attorneys and experience different practioner styles. All program participants will be invited to attend a kick-off event.

Registration for the 2012 NLD Law Student Mentoring Program is open through October 5, 2012. To Register as a Law Student, click here. To register as an Attorney Mentor, click here.
