NAPABA’s New Mentoring Program by Paul Rivera

NAPABA is proud to offer its inaugural mentoring program to the greater NAPABA membership this Fall.  Candidates for mentors and mentees will be chosen by the Mentoring Committee from those NAPABA members who apply to participate in the program.  The program will last one year and will have a limited number of mentor-mentee pairs, depending on the number of qualified applicants.  The expected time commitment for the program generally runs 4-5 hours per quarter for the duration of the year.

The goal of the program seeks to foster relationships between NAPABA members who are experienced attorneys and NAPABA members who are either (i) new to the practice of law and in need of guidance, including advice on professional development, career goals and transitioning into the law or (ii) attorneys who are at a critical juncture in their career and in need of guidance on how to move forward or position themselves to take advantage of future opportunities.

For the program to be a continued success and have value for the participants, the mentor and mentee must be able to make a personal commitment to this program both in terms of time and interest.  While the expected commitment for participation in the formal program is one year, in many cases the mentor and mentee relationship will continue beyond the program duration.

If you believe that this program may benefit you, we urge you to complete and submit an application.  To apply to the mentoring program, please complete the appropriate attached application and email one copy of it to each of the following committee members:

Andy Yamamoto, Esq.

Bettina W. Yip, Esq.

bettina.yip@att.com

The deadline for submission for inclusion into this year’s program is Friday, August 15, 2008.  Due to limited resources, not all applications may be accepted for the program for this Fall.
