2020 Law School Graduate Mentoring: Bar Coaching and Career Coaching Mentee Kickoff Event

Friday, June 12, 2020 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


About the program:

The BBA is proud to announce we are expanding our bar coaching program, as well as adding career coaching for new attorneys. This is a difficult time to enter the practice of law and the BBA wants to be there to support you. You can sign up to be matched with a coach to help you through the bar exam with study techniques, time management and support. If you wish, you can continue with the program to work with your coach on transitioning to your career. Whether you are beginning in a law firm and want tips to navigate the practice in a partially virtual world or looking for your first opportunity, a coach can offer advice and support. All coaching programs will be supported by tailored professional development programs and roundtable discussions.

BBA members who are preparing to take the 2020 bar exam (first time and repeat takers) can apply. Mentees can request mentorship and guidance on specific skills, like resume writing or interview prep, or may simply be seeking to connect with a more experienced attorney to learn about the ins and outs of Boston's legal community. If you're interested in signing-up, click here to complete an online sign-up form.

About the event:

This event will officially kick off the bar and career coaching programs. All who have signed up as a mentee in either are welcome, as are all who would like to learn more! We will provide a comprehensive update of what has changed with the fall 2020 bar exam, and what might still change in light of COVID-19. We will also have a panel of 2008-2010 law school graduates who entered the job market after the Great Recession. The panelists will offer concrete advice to today’s class of new attorneys! For attendees preparing for the bar exam, we will offer direct guidance on effective study techniques and additional programming.
