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


The Miami-Dade Chapter of Florida Association for Women Lawyers Presents… 


WHO: All students (male and female) 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. 

WHAT: The mentoring program pairs practicing attorneys and judges in the South 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. 

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 speak with each of the prospective mentors. Then, both the attorneys and the students will anonymously make their top three picks and the FAWL Mentoring Committee will make the mentor pairings. 

WHEN: Thursday, November 14, 2013 from 5:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m. 

WHERE: Shook Hardy & Bacon, LLP, Miami Center (Attached to the InterContinental, Hotel), 201 South Biscayne Boulevard, Suite 3200, Miami, FL 33131.

QUESTIONS?: Please contact Lauren Brunswick.
