How matches are made
Both mentors and mentees create profiles that are then used for matching criteria, such as law school affiliation and student’s area of interest. The mentee will be matched with a mentor that closely meets his or her preferences. Once matched, the mentor and mentee will receive an email with each other's contact information.
How the relationship works
The mentor will initiate the relationship through an introductory email with information such as education, career interest or path, current legal position. Participants should discuss and agree on common expectations for the mentorship relationship.
Participants should establish how often to communicate as part of their introductory emails. Along with introductory emails, participants can exchange resumes or interesting details to become more familiar with each other.
All communication is on BarristerBoard.com and kept professional. Mentees can post questions to their mentors, participate in open discussions or read questions/answer posted by others in the Forum section on the BarristerBoard.com.
