Online Mentoring Orientation

In-Person Meetings Exception (Virtual Meetings Allowed)

As an organization dedicated to promoting professional responsibility in the legal and judicial communities, the well-being of those we serve is our highest priority. We want to make it easy for those participating in our mentoring program to connect during this time when social distancing is being urged.

Therefore, due to concerns about COVID-19, and in accordance with guidance from the Illinois Supreme Court, those participating in our lawyer-to-lawyer mentoring program may hold any or all of their required minimum eight in-person meetings over the one-year term through video conference. This exception has been extended through June 30, 2021.
