The New Jersey Law Firm Group Mentor Program - Career Services is still accepting registration forms

Founded in 1990, the New Jersey Law Firm Group ("NJLFG") is a group comprised of New Jersey law firms, law schools, corporate legal departments, government agencies and public interest organizations that recognize the importance and advantages of diversity in serving the needs of clients and enhancing the legitimacy and public image of the legal profession. The NJLFG is committed to its mission of increasing the diversity of the New Jersey bar and assisting its members with their individual diversity initiatives. The NJLFG's Mentor Program is designed to match interested, diverse law students with attorney-mentors from some of the top New Jersey law firms and organizations. Mentors serve as a resource for the law student while they complete law school, navigate the recruitment process, and search for career options and opportunities. Law students may register for the NJLFG's Mentor Program by filling out a registration form found here. Completed forms should be submitted to the Office of Career Services on the 2nd Floor. The Office of Career Services is still accepting registration forms - please submit them as soon as possible. The NJLFG is planning to hold a Mentor/Mentee reception on Tuesday, January 26, 2010.
