Health Law Mentoring Program Now Accepting Mentee Applications

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

Bar Association’s Health Law Section is launching a Health Law Mentoring Program this fall which will pair seasoned health law attorneys with unemployed or under employed new lawyers who will undertake pro bono legal work for health law-related cases under the direction of a Mentor.

Health Law Advocates will assign the case to the Mentee and provide initial orientation and training, as well as appropriate ongoing support. The Mentor is available to provide direction to the Mentee as needed. Health Law Advocates will provide malpractice insurance to both the Mentee and the Mentor. Health Law Advocates will appear in court with the Mentee if necessary and will ensure that the needs of the case are handled in a timely and efficient manner. More information on Health Law Advocates and the type of case work that they handle can be found here.

If you are a new lawyer and are interested in participating, you are encouraged to fill out the application which can be found here and return it to Susan Helm by November 2nd. Space is limited so do not delay.
