LeGal Mentor Program

LeGaL is proud to announce the start of its exciting and new Mentor Program for LGBT lawyers and law students. LeGaL encourages each of its lawyer members to recall those difficult first years as a law student and lawyer and to consider becoming a mentor for a local LGBT law student or new lawyer. Law students and new lawyers should take advantage of this opportunity to meet experienced lawyers and build valuable professional networks. Mentors are expected to meet with mentees approximately once every other month for a period of one year. This program is a wonderful and easy opportunity to get involved and make a difference in the future of the greater New York area's LGBT legal community.

Go to LeGal's website for more information. LeGaL will do its best to match mentees with mentors in similar geographical areas, whose substantive legal practice is of interest to the mentee and who match any other criteria requested by the mentee, to the extent possible. LeGaL seeks a diverse pool of mentors to reflect the increasingly diverse population of LGBT law students and new lawyers.

Join LeGal for the Mentor Program Kick-off party on Wednesday April 29 from 6 – 8 pm (All LeGaL Members are invited to attend) at The Stonewall Inn, 53 Christopher Street (at 7th Ave. South). (LeGaL has a reserved a private room on the second floor).
