Through its Mentoring Program, LGBT Bar NY seeks to foster the professional development of LGBTQ law students and assist them in navigating the unique issues they might encounter during Law School and the beginning of their legal careers. The Mentoring Program aims to reinforce a sense of community among members of the LGBTQ legal community while enhancing the skills and career prospects of participants.
Area law students who are members of LGBT Bar NY are eligible to register as mentees. The Mentoring Program will provide a mentor for support and to assist in achieving academic, professional, and personal goals.
*Applications for LGBT Bar NY's Mentoring Program are due by 5:00 p.m. on March 10, 2023.
LGBT Bar NY's Mentoring Program is co-sonsored by the New York City Bar LGBTQ Rights Committee and Hispanic National Bar Association LGBT Division. The program is done in partnership with the Dominican Bar Association and the New York State Bar Association LGBTQ Law Section.
Having a mentor through [LGBT Bar NY] was one of the most beneficial choices I could have made. I was introduced to excellent new contacts and invited into professional circles much earlier than other law school colleagues. And, more than gaining a professional mentor, I gained a friend.

As a mentor, I use my professional experience and network to help rising law students and lawyers reach their potential. Mentorship is critical to ensuring a diverse bar and bench.
