Seeking participants in FACL’s 2016 Mentorship Pilot Project

FACL is piloting a new mentorship program targeting mentorship for practitioners who are 2-4 years post-call.  The purpose of the new program is to provide mid-level practitioners with guidance and networking opportunities to enhance their chances of promotion.

We are looking for potential mentees who are 2-4 years post-call and mentors who have at least 8-10 years of post-call experience. As this is a pilot program, we have set a goal of 20-25 pairs who will be matched based on practice area, career goals and general fit.

The pilot program is expected to run from May, 2016 to May, 2017.

If you are interested in participating as either a mentor or mentee, please fill out one of the online intake forms below.
