Law Students

Mentorship Program

Each school year, OCAABA's Mentoring Committee offers a formal Mentorship Program for OCAABA's law student members. Student participants accepted into the Program will be matched up with an experienced OCAABA attorney or judge member who will provide them with general guidance on the legal profession, including tips on developing lawyering skills and choosing a career. The Mentoring Committee will assist in helping mentors and mentees get to know each other better by providing both formal opportunities for mentors and mentees to meet and network, as well as informal suggestions for engaging in meaningful dialogues and discussions.

The deadline to apply has passed.
