Mentoring Program for Tennessee CLE


  Program Overview
Welcome Beginning Lawyers, Mentors, and Sponsoring Organizations.

Beginning July 1, 2013 help is on the way…

Mentoring becomes available for CLE credit on July 1, 2013. Attorneys can earn up to 6 hours per year of dual credit for participation as a mentor or mentee in a program meeting standards established by the Commission.

What is Mentoring?
The Mentoring initiative is the realization of many years of hard work and dedication by current and past Commission members and staff. It grew out of a desire to bridge the gap between the law school experience and the real world of law practice. There are many types of law practice and there is not a one size fits all guide to how to become the best lawyer in your chosen field of practice. There are many experienced and well respected lawyers in the State of Tennessee who have a wealth of knowledge and experience to share. This mentoring initiative provides an opportunity for experienced lawyers to share their knowledge and expertise with a beginning lawyer and to help guide them to become the best lawyer that they can be. Step up to the challenge and help enhance the profession by making sure that no beginning attorney has to be wait listed or turned away for lack of a mentor.
  Certification for CLE Credit

In order to received CLE credit for participation in a mentoring program the Mentor and Beginning attorney must sign a statement certifying success completion of the mentoring plan. In addition participants must complete the Commission’s standardized online evaluation form.
