The purpose of the Mentoring Committee is to plan and coordinate the OCBA Mentoring Program for OCBA attorneys who are admitted to practice five years or less. This Program provides new lawyers with a helpful, independent resource in their first years of practice. Participants accepted into the Program are matched with an experienced, active OCBA member available to provide guidance to the participant in such areas as ethics and professionalism, practice and law office management, general lawyering skills and business/client development.
The Mentoring Committee’s overall responsibility is to review and develop criteria for the Mentoring Program, and to evaluate and screen proteges and mentors.
The Committee meets on an ad-hoc basis beginning in November of the previous year. The committee's duties and activities are concluded by the end of the following year. Committee members are selected by the President to represent a broad spectrum of the OCBA membership.
