Florida Bar Mentoring Program

Counsel to Counsel

Counsel to Counsel logo, which uses a torch and a flam in a sea blueCounsel to Counsel is a first-of-its-kind mentoring program designed to pair new lawyers with those who are more established in their careers. The technology-based program, administered through the MentorcliQ app, expertly matches lawyers based on their profiles.

Potential mentees are all lawyers licensed with The Florida Bar for five or fewer years. Mentors are lawyers with five or more years of experience.

When attorneys sign up for Counsel to Counsel, they fill out a brief survey and the program then provides ratings on the compatibility between mentors and mentees. From there, the mentor or mentee can choose their top three options, and the technology establishes the final match based on those responses. The program is nine months long, with four milestones and a practical experience requirement to guide mentors and mentees in their relationship.
