Recent law school graduates who plan to practice in Oregon have been put on notice that their formal legal education won’t end once they pass the bar.

They will be the first to participate in a mandatory yearlong mentorship program designed to help them develop the practical and professional skills they need to be successful lawyers. The requirement was announced in a letter that Oregon Chief Justice Paul De Muniz sent to all February bar exam takers. The program requires new attorneys to pair up with experienced practitioners who will offer monthly guidance on everything from ethics and professionalism to the inner workings of a transactional or litigation practice.
