Through the Mentoring Program, LeGaL seeks to foster the professional development of LGBT law students, while assisting mentees with navigating some of the unique issues that members of the LGBT community may confront during law school and at the beginning of their legal careers. Relaunched annually every fall, the Mentoring Program aims to reinforce a sense of community among members of the local LGBT legal community and enhance the skills and career prospects of participants.
For complete details on the program, please read the Mentoring Program Manual.
Attorneys who are admitted to practice in the NYC-metro area and LeGaL members in good standing are eligible to serve as mentors. Attorneys considering serving as mentors are also encouraged to read the Attorney Fact Sheet.
Returning Mentors: If you previously participated as a mentor and/or signed up online in prior years, we ask that you still complete the registration form each year to confirm your continuing interest and to ensure we have your most current information.
Area law students are eligible to register as mentees.
Please do not sign-up for this program unless you are genuinely committed to participating, as you might deny others the ability to be paired with a mentor.
