New Lawyer and Law Student Mentoring Initiative
The Section's Membership Committee is seeking volunteers who will be added to a list of potential mentors to assist new lawyers and/or law students. We are particularly sensitive to the needs of new lawyers who find it necessary, given the current economic environment, to hang up their own shingle, while lacking the requisite practical skills. We intend to maintain the list of potential mentors, and send you information about potential mentees from time to time. You can decide at a later date if you have the time and wherewithal to assist. Mentoring includes being able to field practice questions from a mentee and/or establishing a relationship to help a mentee through the challenges of law school and/or the early years of practice.
The FICPA Liaison Committee is focused on our outreach to the FICPA community of accountants. Its goal is to facilitate communication and interaction between The Florida Bar and the Florida Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
Our newly-formed Diversity Committee is comprised of judges, academicians, and lawyers who represent a broad cross-section of our membership. The focus of the Diversity Committee is to make the BLS an open and inclusive Section of the Bar, welcoming to all lawyers who are interested in enhancing diversity, and mentoring lawyers of varied backgrounds and interests who want to become leaders of the Section and the Bar.
