The importance of mentors is often impressed upon us as young professionals. A strong mentor-mentee relationship can be a critical component of career development and advancement. As lawyers, we are encouraged to seek out mentors when we are fresh-out-of-law-school attorneys or junior associates.  We are instructed to look to more senior professionals, both within our organization and outside.

Before we know it, we have become someone else’s mentor. Thankfully, because we’ve seen a diverse range of mentoring styles, we also can identify a handful of tips for being a terrific mentor.
