Join the Massachusetts LGBTQ Bar Association’s 2017-2018 Mentoring Program!

Attend the Mentoring Program Recption!  


The Massachusetts LGBTQ Bar Association invites all attorneys and law students to join the 2017-2018 Mentoring Program.

The Mentoring Program aims to match LGBTQ and allied lawyers and law students across different career stages to facilitate and foster supportive and mutually meaningful professional mentoring relationships tailored to the individual needs and goals of the participants.  In addition, the Mass. LGBTQ Bar Mentoring Program seeks to be responsive to the diverse needs of the individual participants, including the exploration of new legal careers, advice on issues related to the practice of law as an LGBTQ lawyer, and/or the expansion of professional networks and career opportunities.

Each senior-level attorney with significant work experience will be paired with 1-2 junior or mid-level attorneys and a group of law students to connect with and form this mentoring relationship over the coming year.

The Bar Association is now accepting applications from attorneys and law students interested in joining or continuing their participation in the program!

Law Students may apply by completing the application available here, and Attorneys may apply by completing the separate application available here.

If you have not yet done so, you can still sign up to become a member of the Mentoring Program.  The deadline for all applications has been extended to Tuesday, October 17, 2017.

The Mentoring Program Reception will be held on Wednesday, October 25, 2017, at 6PM at dbar, 1236 Dorchester Avenue, Dorchester.  Please spread the word!
