Mentoring Matters

Mentoring with the Masters
The Young Lawyer's Division of The Florida Bar offers mentoring resources including a Mentoring Program Guide and a Mentoring with the Masters Video Series External Link. The Mentoring Program Guide allows Florida attorneys seeking to be a mentor or a mentee to search for programs by geographical location.

The Mentoring with the Masters series offers advice from Bar leaders and experts in a variety of targeted videos aimed at helping newer lawyers in the formative years of their practice. Several of these videos focus on professionalism including but not limited to: Exercising Professionalism, Ethics in Social Media, Professionalism is an Expectation, and Attorney Conduct that Results in Bar Grievances with Linda Calvert Hanson, Former Director of the Henry Latimer Center for Professionalism; E-Etiquette and the New Professionalism with Florida Bar President, Gregory Coleman, Quality of Life with John Sutton of the Sutton Law Group, P.A. and Jamie Moses, of Fisher Rushmer, P.A. as well as courtroom decorum.
