  • HBA-NJ Mentoring Program
    HBA-NJ’s Mentorship Program includes first, second and third year law students from all three of New Jersey’s law schools. The program partners with the law schools’ Latino student organizations who serve as our liaisons to the students. This year each law school has a designated liasion. (See below for contact information.)

HBA-NJ will organize four (4) panel discussions and workshops throughout the year. They will cover topics ranging from networking and career alternatives to how to write an effective resume and cover letter. Our workshops will be held at the law schools and will be open to students as well as HBA-NJ members. They will be free of charge. Panelists will include Hispanic attorneys from the New Jersey/New York area. The panel discussions and workshops will serve as a resource guide for students about the opportunities that are available to them and what they need to do in order to take advantage of them. HBA-NJ will also host two receptions - one at the opening and the other at the conclusion of this year’s mentorship program. At the receptions, the students will have the opportunity to meet with each other, get to know their mentors, and network with other attorneys.

First and second year law students will be partnered with a mentor who will focus on helping the student make the transition to law school, finding internships and securing summer employment. Mentors are expected to provide thoughtful counsel when it is requested of them and should not hesitate to share both their wisdom and experience on any relevant topic. Mentors are also asked to meet with the student on a regular basis. Third year law students will be partnered with a mentor who will be asked to focus on career development in a more student specific manner. This should include, but not be limited to, advising and assisting them in planning how to obtain challenging work assignments, while successfully managing heavy workload demands and competing priorities. Mentors will be assigned based on their areas of practice and a student’s interest in that area. Students who participate in the program each year will be given the opportunity in their third year of being assigned to one of their former mentors. First and second year students will be given new mentors, whenever possible, in order to expose them to a number of different attorneys.
