FBANC 2014-15 Mentorship Program
Accepting Applications Through Monday, September 15

The Filipino Bar Association of Northern California (“FBANC”) is now accepting applications for its 2014-15 Mentorship Program. Through the Mentorship Program, FBANC pairs law students with various Filipino American attorneys throughout the Bay Area who have volunteered to help students navigate through law school and the first years of practice. Mentors come from all parts of the legal profession, including law firm partners and associates, solo criminal defense attorneys, and high-level government attorneys.

To apply, interested students need only complete a short questionnaire (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/14IeS8M2YSAjrba-hBleRpIiiDnnkjomsX01NoBCbAFQ/viewform). Mentors and mentees are matched based on interests, and will be announced by the end of September.

More information about FBANC is available at http://fbanc.org/
