BBA New Lawyers Mentoring Program - Overview and History

The Honorable Eugene R. Verin, Jefferson County Senior Circuit Judge, began the BBA New Lawyer Mentoring Program as a pilot project in 2008.  Thanks to tremendous effort and commitment by Judge Verin and others, the Mentoring Program now continues on an annual basis and provides assistance and support to new lawyers.

The Mentoring Program has five primary components:  Professionalism, Legal Ethics and Civility, Career Development, Basic Skills Practice Areas, and Courtroom Sessions. The Program requires a one-year commitment, which includes six in-person mentee-mentor meetings and attendance at four courtroom sessions.

The Mentoring Program begins in January and concludes in conjunction with the BBA Annual Meeting in December of each year.  Mentee Applications are accepted May 1st-31st and October 1st-31st in advance of the Program's January start date.  Mentor Applications are accepted throughout the year.
