It’s Not Just Another Mentoring Program, Part 3

John Marshall’s Lawyer-to-Lawyer Mentoring Program began in 2011 in collaboration with the Illinois Supreme Court Commission on Professionalism, matching practicing alumni with recent graduates. Over the past two years, we’ve received a tremendous amount of feedback and support from the mentors and the mentees. We put that feedback to work, expanding the program dramatically and focusing the program on those issues of professionalism that affect all developing attorneys, while still leaving room for the mentors and mentees to create a unique relationship.

My first post gave a bit of the background behind the Lawyer-to-Lawyer Mentoring Program, as well as offering the insights of Karen Dimond, an assistant state’s attorney with the State of Illinois. In Part 2 of “It’s Not Just Another Mentoring Program,” Barry Kozak, an adjunct faculty member at John Marshall and the director of our Elder Law Programs, shared his thoughts. In this final post, I’ll present the perspectives of two John Marshall alums working in the private sector.
