Mentorship Committee


Welcome to APABA Silicon Valley's Mentorship Committee! We hope that you will become active in mentoring activities with APABA Silicon Valley both to benefit from mentoring and to provide mentoring to younger lawyers. We welcome your input and participation, and hope to see you at upcoming events!

The Mentorship Committee is dedicated to connecting experienced practitioners with law students and new lawyers to provide them with guidance and advice as they develop their careers. To accomplish this goal, the Mentorship Committee created the “family” system where a mix of experienced practitioners, new lawyers and law students are assigned to small groups. The system is designed to allow members to form stronger connections and create a more structured mentorship process. In addition to the “family” system, the Mentorship Committee also sponsors career development workshops and networking events.

For a number of years, the Mentorship Committee has been dedicated to fostering relationships between local bay area law students and attorneys. With the help of Santa Clara University APALSA, the Mentorship Committee has organized mentorship pairings, various networking events and mixers (at least twice a year), as well as has encouraged and helped foster informal gatherings between students and attorneys.

For more information, please contact one of our co-chairs at mentorship@apabasv.com.
