Mentorship Network

The YLC launched a new Mentorship Network in 2019 to address the need new attorneys have for mentorship. This Network offers new attorneys the opportunity to receive guidance and advice from experienced, senior attorneys. The Network offers two complementary forms of mentorship opportunities. For those who prefer one-on-one interaction, the Mentorship Network will pair a senior attorney with a newer attorney based on practice area, geographic location, and interests. For those who prefer a more informal relationship, the Mentorship Network provides an online forum for discrete questions concerning professional development and career advice.


The initial phase of the Mentorship Network, which consists of one-on-one pairing, has already garnered the interest and participation of over 80 attorneys. We encourage new YLC members to seek both formal and informal mentor relationships to guide them through their first years in our ever-evolving profession. The YLC's Mentorship Network offers a simple and direct way to connect with experienced lawyers outside of your immediate work environment.
