Young Lawyers Network: Filling the Mentorship Gap

A mentor can be one of the greatest assets for a young attorney. Seasoned attorneys often have a story or two about how a mentor shaped their experiences. These stories can often create expectations about mentorship for young attorneys. Such expectations may include having a mentor from your own office assist you in learning your practice area, navigating the politics of your office, and coping with the challenges that come with being a new attorney.
