Mentor Connect

"You need a mentor to be a successful lawyer," they say...but they don't say how to find one!

Your search is over with Mentor Connect, an IndyBar program that matches mentor and mentee pairs to help create meaningful and productive mentor relationships. Free from a laundry list of requirements, Mentor Connect lets the mentor/mentee pair work together to decide what works best for them. Plus, mentor pairs get access to special IndyBar programming, including free CLE!

Mentor Connect is:

Free: There is no fee to participate.

Comfortable: We provide ideas to help get the conversations rolling.

Easy: No laundry list of requirements...just meet informally each month and attend quarterly events.

Value Added: Get free CLE and exclusive access to special events!

What's involved?

Mentees will be paired with mentors based on a variety of factors, personal interests and/or practice area preferences if possible.

Mentor pairs should meet monthly, but what you do is up to you! We'll provide suggested topics to get the conversations rolling. Mentor pairs will have exclusive access to free CLE and other special IndyBar programming.

The Mentor Connect program officially takes place over the course of six months, but the mentor relationship will last far longer than that.
