Mentorship Program

The HBA-NJ’s Mentorship Program matches Latino law students with Latino legal professionals from some of the top New Jersey law firms, legal departments, government agencies and public interest organizations to foster relationships between them to offer guidance and advice as they adjust to the demands of law school, navigate the recruitment process and evaluate potential career options and strategies.  At a time in our history when it is reported that the Latino community is steadily increasing, while the number of Latinos applying and admitted into law schools is dropping, it is particularly important for those of us who have been blessed with successful careers to step up to the plate and nurture and encourage this valuable commodity (Latino law students) to continue their academic and professional pursuits.

We all have very demanding schedules.  Nevertheless, it is extremely important – in keeping with our mission statement – that we cultivate these students to ensure not only that they succeed, but that they are instilled with high standards of integrity, honor and professionalism.  I, therefore, urge you to join me in this endeavor by volunteering to serve as a mentor. 

Watch for information coming soon via email on signing up!

Thank you in advance for your willingness to support the HBA-NJ and this very important program.

Kind regards,

Carlos M. Bollar, Esq., President
