BBA New Lawyers Mentoring Program

Be a Mentee or Mentor in the
2020 New Lawyer Mentoring Program

**New this year: we are condensing the program
into a 5-month session for a more interactive experience**

You can choose to participate in either the
Spring Session or the Fall Session

The Birmingham Bar Association's New Lawyer Mentoring Program assists new lawyers as they become experienced legal practitioners. New lawyers (Mentees) are paired with experienced lawyers (Mentors) for a quality one-on-one mentoring experience. Participation in the program is voluntary and FREE!  A brief history and overview of the program is available here.

FOR MENTEES:  BBA members who have been actively practicing for 3 years or less are invited apply. Applications are accepted through October 31 each year. Choose either the Spring Session (January - May) or the Fall Session (August - December). Submit a Mentee application here

FOR MENTORS:  BBA lawyers who have practiced at least 5 years are invited to become a mentor. The Program seeks experienced, professional and ethical lawyers who can assist Mentees as they transition to experienced practitioners. Choose either the Spring Session (January - May) or the Fall Session (August - December). Submit a Mentor application here.

If you are an existing Mentor and would like to renew your commitment, or if you would like to nominate an experienced lawyer to be a Mentor, please e-mail
