Welcome to the National Legal Mentoring Consortium. Mentoring is now, more than ever, essential to the future success of the legal profession. Through mentoring protégés build practical skills while developing a sense of confidence, identity, and effectiveness in their professional role. Just as importantly, mentoring strengthens our profession by enhancing our sense of community and elevating our standards of competence, ethics, and professionalism.

Attorneys from over 25 different states joined in the national discussion entitled, “Mentoring in Our Evolving Profession,” on the importance of mentoring in our rapidly changing legal profession and how to promote, establish, and support successful mentoring experiences. In addition to these insightful topics and brilliant speakers from across the nation, the program highlighted bar associations and law firms for their efforts in mentoring activities through PED Talks (Professional and Educational Development Talks).
