Every year, over 100 attorneys are admitted to the Delaware Bar and become members of the DSBA. As new attorneys make the transition from the classroom and into practice, they face many challenges and potential pitfalls. The DSBA Mentoring Program is designed to elevate the competence and professionalism of Delaware’s new and recently admitted attorneys and thereby increase the probability of their long-term success.
This program is designed to match Delaware attorneys with more experienced members of the Delaware Bar in their substantive area of practice or expertise.
It is our hope that the mentoring relationships created through this program will accomplish the following:
Assist in the development and improvement of the legal skills of the new admittees or recently admitted Delaware Attorneys
Encourage the use of best practices and the highest ideals of professionalism and civility in the practice of law
Pass on knowledge of and adherence to recognized traditions and customs unique to the practice of law in Delaware
Cultivate collegial relationships among the members of thr Delaware Bar and involvement in the DSBA
