In the legal profession, the mentor-mentee relationship isn’t new. In fact, just the nature of our work marries perfectly with the idea of mentorship, and for years lawyers have recognized its value.
Historically, finding the right mentor was an organic process lawyers would often stumble into: a great professor recognizing the potential in a third-year law student; a senior partner offering coveted opportunities to a junior lawyer; or a seasoned GC choosing and nurturing her successor. Recently, research has shown the true value of mentorship, underscoring the fact that being proactive and finding the right fit can be a key component to an individual’s career success.
