Thank you for your interest in volunteering as a Mentor in the 2020-2021 LCLD Success in Law School Mentoring Program.*
Your personal involvement is what makes this program invaluable for future, up-and-coming attorneys from diverse backgrounds. Your talent, dedication, and perspective will have a powerful effect on the Mentee with whom you will be working.
To be a Mentor, you must be an attorney at an LCLD Member organization (see eligible law firms and corporations), or an LCLD Alumnus. Attorneys of any experience level are welcome to volunteer as Mentors.
To complete your registration, just fill out the form below and click "Sign Up" at the bottom, by August 31, 2021. In September-November you will be contacted via e-mail by LCLD staff to match you with your Mentee.
We would also appreciate any input from you as you participate in the program. Please e-mail Nancy Richardson with any comments, questions, or suggestions. And thanks again for volunteering!
NOTE: Due to ongoing updates from the CDC on social distancing guidelines related to COVID-19, meetings and events may or may not be held in person.
*If you are an LCLD program participant or alumnus who is no longer employed by an LCLD Member organization, and you would like to become a Mentor, please contact Nancy Richardson. We also welcome you to learn more about how your organization can become an LCLD Member by clicking here.
New Mentor-Mentee Matching Options
You now have the option to sign up in either the local regional model or the online virtual model. The "city" session is now referred to as the "regional" session, and in the regional session, you will be matched with a Mentee within your local region for an in-person experience (when it is safe to do so). The virtual session is being included in the program more explicitly this year for participants who prefer the online experience, and wish to be matched with a Mentee anywhere nationwide for a completely virtual experience.
