Mentorship

The Mentorship Project is an online collection of conversations and advice.  As part of the project the YLD teamed with StoryCorps® to share stories on mentorship in the legal profession.

StoryCorps® is an independent nonprofit project whose mission is to honor and celebrate one another’s lives through listening. The stories are also archived in the StoryCorps collection in the Library of Congress.
