MBA's Tiered Community Mentoring Program celebrates the holiday season at Suffolk University Law School

On Tuesday, Dec. 4, Massachusetts Bar Association Tiered Community Mentoring Program participants celebrated the program's first annual holiday event at Suffolk University Law School.

Currently in its fourth year, the MBA's Tiered Community Mentoring program matches selected students, who are interested in law-related careers, with an attorney mentor. As part of this innovative program, students from New Mission High School, Roxbury Community College and Suffolk University Law School have had the opportunity this year to meet accomplished professionals, as well as attend court proceedings and bar association events to learn networking skills.

Over 30 mentors and mentees attended the event. In addition to the social aspect of the event, three attorneys spoke to the attendees about their various personal and professional experiences throughout their careers.  

Event speakers included:

  • Serge Georges Jr., Esq., Law Office of Serge Georges Jr., Randolph;
  • Nicole G. Price, Esq., director for Diversity, Inclusiveness and Affinity Relations at Suffolk University Law School; and
  • Jennifer C. Rowe, Esq., assistant district attorney, Norfolk District Attorney's Office.
