The Mentor/Mentee Progam is designed to provide law students with an opportunity to develop a one-on-one relationship with a lawyer from one of LCD’s member organizations. LCD along with Shipman & Goodwin LLP hosted the Mentor/Mentee Kickoff Dinner on Thursday, October 18, to allow law students the opportunity to meet their mentor as well as other lawyers and law students in the community. For program year 2018-2019, LCD has matched 25 mentees with mentors!

We wish our selected mentors and mentees a successful program year!
