Recognizing the importance of mentors and related resources in an attorney’s professional development, the State Bar of Texas strives to provide programs to Texas attorneys seeking personal and professional guidance as they navigate their careers.
In this program, newly-licensed lawyers are matched with more experienced attorneys who volunteer their time and experience to mentor lawyers in their first several years of licensure. Mentoring covers many areas, including law practice management, effective client representation, pro bono opportunities, career development, and other aspects helpful to successfully practicing law.
The SBOT Mentoring Network is a mentor bank available to attorneys seeking mentors throughout the state. The mentors participating in the SBOT Mentoring Network are willing to answer practice specific or geographic questions and can be contacted directly using the contact information listed on this site. Search for mentors by geographic region and/or practice area.
The Ten Minute Mentor is an online collection of video presentations by leading lawyers in the state. Each short presentation offers free, practical advice and qualifies for MCLE self-study credit.
Office in a Flash was created by the Texas Young Lawyers Association in order to provide information on various topics relevant to establishing a law practice. Inside you discover information about business plans, firm structure, office logistics, technology, and how to obtain and manage revenue. The program offers one free hour of CLE on law office management and four ten minute segments from successful lawyers who have already made this journey.
One of our priorities at the State Bar of Texas is to enhance law students participation in the administration of justice, professional responsibility, and public service.
