Mentoring Program for 2Ls. The State Bar is accepting applications for a mentor program that matches practicing attorneys with 2L law students at the University of Arizona and Arizona State University, so that they can make contact during the summer and establish a mentoring relationship during the 3L year. Mentors look forward to providing their mentees with support, and sharing their thoughts and advice on the real world issues of practicing law. Although mentors are not expected to provide assistance in research or job placement, students have found them to be important “first contacts” in the legal community. Mentors are available in both Phoenix and Tucson and, upon request, in other areas of Arizona. For an application, or for more information about the program, contact Dean Nailon (nailon@law.arizona.edu, 626-6107).
