About the Event
The LCD Mentor Program offers law students of color the opportunity to be paired with one or two practicing attorneys who will serve as a mentor and personal resource throughout the school year. Our 2017-18 event matched 27 students with lawyers from LCD member firms, government agencies, and corporations. The Kickoff Dinner marked the official start of this year’s program and provided an opportunity for mentors and mentees to formally meet. The evening included a discussion on the power of mentoring by Carolyn Golden Hebsgaard and we were honored to have both Hon. Kevin Doyle, Connecticut Superior Court Judge, and Alfredo Fernandez, Shipman & Goodwin Associate and President of the Connecticut Hispanic Bar Association, speak about their own mentor/mentee relationships and the impact those relationships have had in their legal career.
