Mentee Application Mentor/Mentee Guidelines
New Practitioner Section
A big thanks to all of the volunteers who participated in the New Practitioner’s annual community service project at MANNA in Rockville, Maryland. Everyone had a great time packing food boxes to be distributed at MANNA’s local food centers and the MANNA staff was very appreciative!

Let’s put the bitter, cold winter behind us and celebrate the eve of spring with a fieldtrip to the Circuit Court to gain a wealth of knowledge. March’s Chamber Chat will be hosted by the Honorable John W. Debelius, III on Wednesday, March 19, 2014 at 12:30 p.m. Judge Debelius has been the Administrative Judge since September 1, 2009. Prior to his appointment as the Administrative Judge, Judge Debelius was an Associate Judge in the Circuit Court from July 20, 2001 through August 31, 2009. Bring your lunch, along with any questions, and take advantage of this opportunity to get to know a member of our Circuit Court bench in an informal setting. No R.S.V.P. is required, but it is appreciated for planning purposes only. The Chamber Chat is open to all members of the Bar, not just members of the New Practitioners Section. Judge Debelius’s Chambers is located in the Circuit Court Building at 50 Maryland Avenue, Courtroom 1. Please gather by the elevators on the 3rd floor shortly before 12:30 p.m. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Judy Cornwell, Chamber Chat Committee Chair, at (301) 838-3314 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
CALL FOR MENTORS!!! With a new group of admittees sworn-in in December, there is a great demand for mentors at this time. If you have practiced law for more than seven years, please consider volunteering to be a mentor in the Montgomery County Bar Association Mentor-Mentee Program. Please share your experience and offer your guidance to us young attorneys who need it most and are eager to accept it.
Likewise, if you have been practicing law for less than seven years and would like guidance from an experienced attorney and get involved in our community of attorneys, apply to get a mentor.
Applications to be a mentor or mentee are available at http://tinyurl.com/p3337r8, and can be submitted at any time to Jillian Morris at email@example.com.
