Lawyer-2-Lawyer Mentor Program
Nashville Bar Association Lawyer-2-Lawyer Mentors must be an NBA Member in good standing, have practiced law for more than 15 years, consult on legal topics that constitute 50 percent or more of their practice, and carry professional liability insurance. An NBA Lawyer-2-Lawyer Protégé must be an NBA member in good standing and have practiced law for seven years or less.
Questions channeled through L2L volunteers may range from inquiries concerning specific court procedures and expectations to current and future opportunities within practice areas. However, L2L is not a forum for Bar members to engage other Bar members as unofficial co-counsel in an on-going case.
Since everyone’s time is a limited and precious commodity, all NBA members who contact volunteers must formulate their questions concisely prior to contact and ensure the initial contact takes no longer than three to five minutes unless mutually agreed upon by both parties.
The areas of legal topics that Mentors can choose from are as follows:
- Alternative Dispute Resolution / Mediation
- Business Law
- Civil Law
- Collections / Creditors’ Rights
- Consumer Law
- Criminal Law/Criminal Procedure
- Entertainment Law
- Family Law
- Health Law
- Insurance Law
- Labor & Employment Law
- Law Practice Management
- Probate Law
- Property Law
- Social Security Disability
- Work / Life Balance
- Workers’ Compensation
