One of the best ways to help develop and retain your valued employees is by having them work with a skilled mentor. Many firms have created programs to facilitate the creation of mentoring partnerships, but the programs have not always delivered the desired results, leading to frustration of both mentees and mentors. However, mentoring programs can deliver great results if they are designed well from the start. This session will examine current research on mentoring programs and will detail how firms can get the most out of them.


  • Describe how firms can benefit from facilitated mentoring programs.
  • Identify what structure to create for an effective program.
  • Explain what should be covered in mentor and protégé training.
  • Summarize how to evaluate the program for success.

Audience Statement: This session assumes that participants have a working knowledge of human resource needs and procedures in a legal setting. No advance preparation is required.
