New Lawyers Struggling to Find Employment

John Coon

February 19, 2013

A major benefit that comes from mentoring is the opportunity to network with lawyers seasoned in particular areas of law. It can mean a great deal for a young lawyer to make connections with others who work similar cases. More experienced lawyers can consult with them on issues related to a particular case or even refer potential clients to the younger lawyer.

“Exposure to mentoring, building relationships and establishing a network hopefully provides opportunities in that respect,” says Curtis Jensen, the Utah State Bar commissioner. “It introduces them to other areas where they may not have an opportunity just coming out [of school] without those relationships and networks.”

Jensen believes that mentoring new lawyers is the best way to ensure the legal system works the way it is supposed to work. Lawyers who gain experience and foster relationships with other lawyers can build their own career and enhance the contributions they make to the profession.

“Once a lawyer is in the system, we want to do our best to make sure they are going to be trained through the new lawyers program and they are going to have the opportunities to advance their career,” Jensen says.
