The ISBA Young Lawyers Division is accepting applications from ISBA members to serve as mentors or mentees for the 2017-2018 mentor year.

Applications will be accepted through May 31. Mentors and mentees will then be matched and the year-long program will begin June 15. You can learn more about the program and find applications on the ISBA Mentoring Program web page.

ISBA members who have been licensed for fewer than five years in the state of Iowa are eligible to be a mentee. To serve as a mentor, attorneys must have been licensed for five years or more in Iowa, have a clean disciplinary record and carry malpractice insurance (if required). The program guidelines are minimal: a recommended six hours of contact over the year between mentor and mentee (ideally in-person) with no formal curriculum.

Once matched for the 2017-2018 year, mentors and mentees are encouraged to meet up at the YLD Tailgate event at the ISBA headquarters on Tuesday, June 20, from 5:30-8:30 p.m. More details on the Tailgate, as well as the rest of ISBA Annual Meeting events, can be found in this program schedule.
