Mentoring Month: Engagement and Education!

Every January, the American Inns of Court celebrates one of its competencies and cornerstones of the profession: mentoring.

This year we have new educational offerings and engagement opportunities for both individuals and Inn members. You can earn CLE credits and acquire new knowledge through these mentoring activities and programs.

Join the Mentoring Challenge!

This year, we challenge all Inn members to participate in the Mentoring Challenge. Participate in activities and programs throughout January 2019 and show everyone what being part of the American Inns of Court can mean both personally and professionally.  Share your progress and follow along on social media with #AICMentoringChallenge.

The Inn with the most participation in all activities will be recognized in the American Inns of Court community. Here’s how you and your Inn can participate this Mentoring Month:
