The Miami-Dade Chapter of Florida Association for Women Lawyers Presents: Speed Networking

WHO: All students interested in participating in a mentoring program. The program provides students with an opportunity to form a mutually beneficial relationship with an attorney or judge in the community in an effort to foster professional growth, career development and personal fulfillment. Both male and female law students are welcome and encouraged to attend.

WHAT: The mentoring program pairs practicing attorneys and judges in theSouth Florida legal community with law students. The mentors and mentees are encouraged to meet, e-mail or telephone as frequently as desired to establish a meaningful mentoring relationship designed to assist the students in developing their legal careers. The program is intended to provide mentoring to the students for one school year, although many past mentees have maintained an ongoing relationship with their mentors. Follow up events for mentor-mentee pairings will take place throughout the year.

HOW: The mentors and mentees will be paired based on areas of practice, interests, schedules and preference after the initial event. Modeled after “Speed Dating,” at the initial event, the prospective mentees will be given five minutes to talk with each of the prospective mentors. Then, both the attorneys and the students will anonymously make their top three picks and the FAWLMentoring Committee will make up the mentor pairings.
