Mentee Application Mentor/Mentee Guidelines
New Practitioner Section
Thank you to everyone who attended our first Nuts & Bolts program of the year: Nuts & Bolts of Discovery. A special thanks goes out to our presenters, Louis Leibowitz and Ivonne Lindley, who put on an enlightening and informative program.
Please join the New Practitioner’s Section for our annual Fall Friendraiser on Thursday, November 13, 2014 from 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. at Trapezaria, 11 North Washington Street, Rockville, MD 20850. Come and support the Montgomery County Family Justice Center by bringing new, unwrapped toys for any age, grocery store gift cards and other merchandise gift cards, which we will donate to the Family Justice Center. We invite all members of the BAMC to join us for food, friends, and libations!
If you cannot make it to the Friendraiser, you can drop off your donations to Kathryn Deckert, 23 West Middle Lane, Rockville, MD 20850, any time before December 19, 2014.
The November Chamber Chat will be hosted by the Honorable David A. Boynton on Wednesday, November 19, 2014 at 12:30 p.m. Judge Boynton has been an Associate Judge since December, 2003, and has thirty-two (32) years of legal experience to share. Prior to serving on the Circuit Court, Judge Boynton was in private practice and an Assistant State’s Attorney. From 1990 to 2003, Judge Boynton was the team leader of the Silver Spring felony trial unit. This is an excellent opportunity for both new and more experienced practitioners to gain insight and knowledge in how to try criminal and civil litigations. The Chamber Chat is open to all members of the Bar, not just members of the New Practitioner Section. Judge Boynton’s Chambers is located in the Circuit Court Building at 50 Maryland Avenue, North Tower, 6th Floor, Room 6010. Please meet in the hallway outside chambers shortly before 12:30 p.m. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Elizabeth McInturff at (240) 399-7880 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen,
and a push in the right direction.

If you have not already, please consider participating in the Montgomery County Bar Association Mentor-Mentee Program. By participating in the Program, experienced attorney-mentors are paired with new-practitioner-mentees. The mentors share their experiences and wisdom with their mentees. Both mentors and mentees build relationships with each other, involve themselves in the Montgomery County Bar Association, and network with other mentors and mentees. With their involvement, each can learn from one another.
If you have practiced law for more than seven years, we encourage you to volunteer as a mentor in the Montgomery County Bar Association Mentor-Mentee Program. If you have been practicing law for less than seven years and would like guidance from a mentor, we encourage you to apply to get a mentor. Applications to be a mentor or mentee are available at http://www.barmont.org/?164, and can be submitted at any time to Rosalyn Tang email@example.com or Eby Kalantar firstname.lastname@example.org.
