The rush of the end of summer is upon us, and that fresh crisp in the air is the sound of fall and the academic year beginning. It's a time to cherish our fond memories and dive back in to work! But even if you're caught up in work, I hope everyone remembers to take time out of their schedule to focus on growing their career-especially by finding a mentor!
BALIF's "Connections" Mentorship program is in full swing, and mentor/mentee pairs are being assigned on a rolling basis right now. Both young lawyers and law students are welcome to apply to have a mentor. The first Mentor/Mentee event will be a kick off happy hour on September 4, 2014, so make sure you get your applications in soon so you have a mentor to greet when you get there! For more information, read on below or contact Julie Wilensky at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As summer comes to a close, I want to pay special respects to the new 1Ls who have just started or are soon starting their law school career! Congratulations on making it this far, and please remember that we're here for you!
