Mentee Application Mentor/Mentee Guidelines
New Practitioner Section
Thank you to everyone who made it out to our Welcome Back Happy Hour at Gordon Biersch. We had a great turn out and hope to see many more of you in the weeks to come!
We would also like to thank everyone who came out to support the Bar Association’s Third Annual Inspiration Walk and 5k for the Montgomery County Special Olympics, which was held on September 28th at Georgetown Prep. The event was a great success, raising a substantial amount of money and support for the Montgomery County Special Olympics. It was a wonderful, fun-filled day! The amount of support for this amazing event was truly inspiring. Thank you to everyone who participated, whether through volunteering, running, walking, or donating. Everyone had a hand in making this event a great success!
Our first installment of the “Nuts and Bolts” series for this year will be held on Thursday, October 23, 2014 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. in the Upstairs Conference Room of the Bar Association building. Louis Leibowitz, a solo practitioner at the Law Offices of Louis M. Leibowitz, LLC, and Ivonne Lindley, senior counsel at Stein Sperling Bennett DeJong Driscoll PC, will be presenting on the “Nuts and Bolts of Discovery.” Our presenters have a wealth of knowledge and experience on this topic, and will provide helpful insight and share practical tips regarding discovery strategy and handling discovery motions in civil, criminal, family, and personal injury cases. Don’t miss this interesting and highly informative program. Also, don’t forget to bring your discovery questions with you!
The October Chamber Chat will be hosted by the Honorable Gary E. Bair on Tuesday, October, 21, 2014 at 12:30 p.m. Judge Bair has been an Associate Judge since January, 2012, and has presided over cases touching every aspect of the law, including complex criminal, civil, and family law litigations. Prior to joining the Circuit Court, Judge Bair gained a wealth of experience through serving as a law clerk on the Court of Appeals of Maryland, as an Assistant Public Defender, as the Assistant Attorney General, as the Chief, Medicaid Fraud Control Unit in the Office of the Attorney General, Chief of the Criminal Appeals Division, and as Solicitor General. In addition, Judge Bair spent several years in private practice. As a litigator, Judge Bair appeared before the Maryland appellate courts and before the United States Supreme Court. No RSVP is required, but it is appreciated for planning purposes only. The Chamber Chat is open to all members of the Bar, not just members of the New Practitioners Section. Judge Bair's Chambers is located in the Circuit Court Building at 50 Maryland Avenue, South Tower, 5th Floor, Room 5720. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Elizabeth McInturff, Chamber Chat Committee Chair, at (240) 399-7900 or email@example.com.
FALL HAPPY HOUR: October 14, 2014 at 5 PM
Sushi Damo in Rockville Town Square
36 Maryland Ave, Rockville, MD 20850
The Mentor/Mentee Committee is hosting a fall happy hour! Mentors, mentees, and interested BAMC members are all invited to join. RSVP to Eby Kalantar at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
