Be a mentor

What is a mentor?

The MBA’s Mentor Program serves as a rewarding opportunity for experienced attorneys to provide advice and direction to new practitioners, as well as to experienced colleagues who may be handling an unfamiliar area of law. MBA members who volunteer as mentors help to promote professionalism and collegiality within the legal profession. If you are interested in becoming a mentor, see the qualifications below.

To be a mentor, you must:

  • Be an MBA member in good standing;
  • Have practiced law for more than seven years;
  • Agree to voluntarily advise other MBA members; and
  • Consult on legal topics that constitute 50 percent or more of your practice.

Areas of practice
The MBA welcomes mentors on more than 150 areas of law.
