Taken from the briefing Mentoring: The Best Kept Secret to Success in the Recovery recorded March, 2013.

Mentoring has not been a priority in many law firms during the recent years of economic turbulence and rapid change. Yet it is an essential investment in legal talent because firms cannot function or survive without well-prepared and confident associates to meet current and future client needs, become law firm partners and serve as law firm leaders. Now as the economic recovery takes hold, firms must again focus on this critical professional development activity. This program will examine the mechanics of mentoring and present strategies for making mentoring successful in your firm.

Lecture Topics  [Total Time: 01:02:30]

Using an interview format, Ari L. Kaplan and Ida O. Abbott will discuss how mentoring can:
  • Build social capital among lawyers, strengthen law firm culture and retain top talent
  • Accelerate associates' learning and development
  • Improve practice and project management
  • Increase professional engagement and career satisfaction
